8 Molecular Representations How do we draw molecules? The Rules 2200 is a covalent bond (electron pair shared by two atoms) : is a lone (nonbonded) electron pair Carbons do not always have to be drawn Hydrogens can be omitted only if carbon not written as C All other atoms must always be shown Lone pairs do not always have to be shown Formal charges must always be shown Three-dimensional geometry does not always have to be shown
