Q. 235.0( 1 Vote )

A black compound A. – 3 to +3

B. – 3 to 0

C. – 3 to +5

D. 0 to – 3

Answer :

when a black compound of manganese reacts with a halogen the following reaction takes place:

MnO2 + 4HCl MnCl2 + 2H2O + Cl

A greenish yellow gas is produced, it means that chlorine is liberated during the reaction

When excess of Cl2 reacts with ammonia:

NH3 + 2Cl2NCl3 + 3HCl

Oxidation state of nitrogen in NH3 can be calculated by

Let the oxidation state of N is x.

X + 3*(+1) = 0, x = -3

Oxidation state of NCl3 can be calculated by

X + 3*(-1) = 0, x = +3

Therefore oxidation state of nitrogen varies from -3 to +3.

Hence the correct option is (i).
