SCH3U Aliyah Jh. March 24/15 Building Molecular Models Pre-Lab Questions 1) The basic way to find the electron is by using the octet rule. Depending on the formula, I may make lone pairs or shared electrons alone, so the resulting molecule/compound has an octet. For example, carbon tetrachloride. Carbon would have four shared electrons so it connects with the one-shared electron from each chlorine atom to become octet. Another example, dihydrogen monoxide. The oxygen atom would need to have two lone pairs of electrons and two shared electrons because it has to bond with each hydrogen atom that has one shared electron, to have an octet. 2) What characteristics of a Lewis structure tell you whether a bond between two atoms is a single bond, a double bind, or a triple bond? 3) What is the difference between a two-dimensional image and a three-dimensional image? The difference between a two-dimensional image and a three-dimensional image are in the two-dimensional image we use balls to represent atom.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
