The oxidation value of a nitrogen atom in methylamine CH3NH2 is -3, supposedly the same as in ammonia.

In ammonia (NH3) and ammonium ions (NH4+) it has a oxidation value of -3 (and actually only a partial negative charge as part from a polar covalent, non-ionic bond).

Is methylamine polar?

Methylamine, or CH3NH2 is a polar molecule. The most electronegative atom in the molecule is nitrogen, which also has a lone pair on it. Also, hydrogen bonding occurs between N-H, which are polar bonds.

How many electrons does an atom of nitrogen have?

The atomic number of nitrogen is 7. That means that nitrogen has 7 protons per atom, each one having a +1 charge. Assuming that the atom of nitrogen is electrically neutral, there must also be 7 electrons, each of them having a -1 charge, in order for the total charge of the atom to be 0.

Why Acetamide is much weaker base than methylamine?

Acetamide is a much weaker base compared to methylamine. This is due to the electron withdrawing effect of the CO group, which makes the lone pair of electrons on the nitrogen atom less available for protonation.

What type of charge does a hydrogen atom of an ammonia molecule have?

A hydrogen atom of an ammonia molecule has a slight positive charge, due to the high electronegativity of the nitrogen atom.

Does nitrogen have no charge?

The neutral nitrogen atom and the neutral nitrogen molecule has no net charge because they are made up of equal numbers of positively charged protons and negatively charged electrons. If the nitrogen atom or molecule gains or looses and electron it becomes a positively or negatively charged ion.

Is cyanide polar?

Yes. Cyanide is the CN- atom, and nitrogen is more electronegative than carbon, so the molecule is polar with the negative "charge" on the nitrogen atom.

How many number of bonds does nitrogen have?

In order to have a net charge of zero, nitrogen can have three bonds. it will often have more or less than that number with a charge on the atom. Example: Ammonia (NH3) versus Ammonium (NH4+)

How do you find the charge of nitrogen?

The nitrogen atom has five valence electrons. It needs three more electrons to have a noble gas configuration, so it will gain three electrons to form the nitride ion with a charge of 3-.
