for acids its replaceable H+ ion( That is H+ directly attached to O), for  basic its OH- ion

 

for salts total +ve or total -ve charge

 

for redox reaction it is no. of e- exchanged per mole of the cmpd of whose n factor has to be found

 

see for Mn and remember any form of Mn changes to Mn2+ in acidic and Cr to Cr3+

 

K2Cr2O7 -> Cr3+

 

THUS OXDATION STATE CHANGES FROM +6 TO +3

thus n factor= +6

Thanks for the answer. I still need to know how you get Mn2+ and Cr3+ in acidic medium. Also how would you know the charge of ions for different elements in different media? For e.g. Charge of Cu ion in basic media?

For acids--Its replaceable H+ ion( That is H+ directly attached to O)

For  basic--Its OH- ion

 

For salts--total +ve or total -ve charge

 

For redox reaction--It is no. of e- exchanged per mole of the compound of whose n factor has to be found.

Dear Student,
Please find below the solution to your problem.

for acids its replaceable H+ ion( That is H+ directly attached to O), for basic its OH- ion
for salts total +ve or total -ve charge
for redox reaction it is no. of e- exchanged per mole of the cmpd of whose n factor has to be found
see for Mn and remember any form of Mn changes to Mn2+ in acidic and Cr to Cr3+
K2Cr2O7 -> Cr3+
THUS OXDATION STATE CHANGES FROM +6 TO +3
thus n factor= +6

Thanks and Regards
