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
