Unformatted text preview: 10 Outline 10.1 Depicting Molecules and Ions with Lewis Structures Lewis Structure- 2-D structural formula using e- dots and each atoms’ neighbor Using the Octet Rule to Write the Lewis Structures Decide placement of each atom and distribution of valence e- (also lone pairs) Lewis Structures for Molecules with Single Bonds 1. place atoms relative to each other. Place atoms w/ lower group # in center bc its needs more e- to attain an octet, usually atom with lower EN. Atoms with the same group # place higher period in center. 2. Determine total # of valence e- available. 3. Draw a line from each outer to the center and subtract two valence e- for each line 4. Distribute the remaining e- in pairs, so each atom has 8 e-. Lewis Structures for molecules with multiples bonds 5. if the central atom doesn’t have four valence atoms, exchange a single for a...
