Chemistry 1311 Problem Set 2 1. Draw structures of the following molecules. Your structures should: i) depict the geometry of the species, ii) show the location of stereochemically active, lone pairs of electrons on the central atom (i.e., non-bonding electron pairs that are involved in the determination of the geometrical basis for the structure), iii) indicate the correct number of lone pairs, if any, on all terminal atoms. a) CO 2 b) ClF 3 c) O 3 d) SnCl 2 e) CH 2 Of ) S O C l 2 Hint: When in doubt choose the least electronegative atom as the “central atom” in compounds such as f). 2. Draw structures of the following species. Your structures should: i) depict the geometry of the species, ii) show the location of stereochemically active, lone pairs of electrons on the central atom (i.e., non-bonding electron pairs that are involved in the determination of the geometrical basis for the structure), iii) indicate the correct number of lone pairs, if any, on all terminal atoms and, iv) show formal charges on individual
