It is a metal sulfate and a molecular unit of iron. It contains an Iron(3+).
The oxidation number of FeSO4 is calculated as 0, it is a neutral compound. The first step is to identify the oxidation number of each element present in the compound. The oxidation number of S is +6. The oxidation number of Fe is +2.
A compound of iron and sulfate in which the ratio of iron(3+) to sulfate ions is 3:2. This entity was manually annotated by the ChEBI team. Ferric sulfate (or ferrous sulfate) is a family of inorganic compounds with the formula Fe2(SO4)3(H2O)n.
Common name. Ferrous Sulphate (Fe2(SO4)3) Description. Ferric sulfate, also known as ferric sulfate or diiron trisulfate, belongs to the class of inorganic compounds known as transition metal sulfates.
For FeSO4, Fe2+ is the cation and SO4 2– are the anions.
Sulfate has a 2− charge, which means it has an extra 2 electrons.
In chemistry, ferrous iron refers to the element iron in its +2 oxidation state. In ionic compounds (salts), such an atom can exist as a separate cation (positive ion), denoted Fe2+.

In the first compound, the iron ion has a 2+ charge because there are two Cl− ions in the formula (1− charge on each chloride ion). In the second compound, the iron ion has a 3+ charge, as indicated by the three Cl− ions in the formula. These are two different connections that need two different names.
For example, iron usually forms two different ions. It can sometimes lose two electrons to form the ion Fe2+, while other times it can lose three electrons to form the ion Fe3 +ion.
