    I would like a simple way to derive the oxidation state of oxygen in K2S2O8, and to be able to explain it.

    This summarises a question from an A level chemistry paper of recent years - obviously my student didn't have Google available!

    That doesn't quite work though.

    How?
    The (S2O8)2- ion is an unusual example (at A level anyway). Each sulfur (Ox state +6) is bonded to 3 oxygens that each have ox state -2. There is also a peroxo bridge between the two sulfur atoms, these oxygens have ox state -1.

    I would just like a simpler way to explain it to A level students, and a way to derive the ox states

    In this example, how did you deduce the number of each ion in the formula?
    How about for more complex examples?

    I have my suspicions about OP.
    1) His English doesn’t sound that great (unusual for a teacher).
    2) I’ve never heard a teacher ask if they can teach students over social media, let alone over FB messenger.
    3) Teachers already have a high workload as it is from teaching at school. They would hardly have any free time to spend with their families (or even to themselves for that matter), let alone have the free time to be going around teaching random students.

    OP, your explanations of the questions so far are quite lacking. I don't feel like you are an A level teacher, but rather an A level student.

    It's just from personal experience I've seen that many teachers do not have much time on their hands.
