What is the oxidation number of sulfur in sulfuric acid?

H2SO4... so Hydrogen has a charge of +1 Oxygen has a charge of -2 2 hydrogens(+1), Sulfur is gonna be represented as X, and there are 4 oxygens(-2)... so the equation is 2(

What do nitrogen oxides and sulfur oxides make?

These two elements combine together with atmospheric water particles to make Photochemical Smog and "London" smog. When the water particles get much denser this forms with the

What is the valency of sulfur in sulfur oxide?

Things are complicated if we use the term valency. It is better to use the term Oxidation state or Oxidation Number. In SO 2 , the oxidation state of sulphur is +4 and
