In this case, the formal the total formal charge is 0. This means that the numbers of bonded and nonbonded pairs are more that correct. Formal Charges for Cl = 7 – ½ (14) – 0 = 0 Formal Charges for O = 6 – ½ (4) – 4 = 0 Hybridizations Cl 2 O 6 has an expanded valence electron configuration. This means that there are more than the usual 8 electrons surrounding an atom. This can be illustrated with a hybrid box diagram: Cl [Ne] _ _ _ _ _ _ _ __ __ There are 7 unbonded 3s 3p 3d electrons in this model. Therefore, chlorine can form 7 bonds. Both Cl atoms have sp 3 hybrid orbitals because there are four electron domains around each one. Each O atom has sp

    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.
