The atomic group is also the number of valence electrons that each atom has, therefore carbon has 4 and chlorine has 7 etc. Step 3 : Fill in all other valence electrons for all atoms in addition to the bonding electrons already added. First fill in lone pairs then add radicals for the moment. Step 4 : Determine weather the octet rule is satisfied for all of the atoms, remember hydrogen only needs two electrons to complete a 1s orbital. Add electrons to bonds where they will satisfy the octet rule by combining the radials you have written in step 3.

    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.
