determine the emperical formula of an oxide of iron which has 69.9% iron and 30.1% dioxygen by mass
Oxygen and fluorine can form two different molecules. One is oxygen difluoride (OF2), and the other is dioxygen difluoride (O2F2).
We can draw it as H-O-O-H . However it is NOT linear molecule. The two H-O bonds are angled to the O-O bonds by about 94.8 o. Then the lone pairs of electrons on the oxygens repulse each other, so this twists the H-O bonds into two different planes , with and angler of 115 o between each plabne. So it is actually a 3-dimensional molecule. Have a look in Wikipedia under Hydrogen peroxide.
Yes under special conditions, to produce dioxygen difluoride, O2F2. For example O2 + F2 mixed at low pressure with an electrical discharge
F-O-O-F Each oxygen has 2 lone pairs on it, while each fluorine has 3 lone pairs. Because of the 3 lone pairs on each oxygen, the bonding angles present are 109.5°.
To calculate the oxidation state of fluorine in O2F2, first draw a diagram of the molecule: F-O-O-F Determine the most electronegative atom(s), which are fluorines -- the most electronegative atom there is. Being in the group 7A, a fluoride ion would gain an electron to a -1 charge, so each has an oxidation number of -1. The oxygens, therefore, have an oxidation number of +1 each.
