CHEM 131: Inorganic Chemistry I (Assignment 1, due date: Oct 22, 2009) 1. Draw the most reasonable Lewis structure, predict the shape for each of the following molecules, and point out their polarity. BrCl 3 , BrF 4 - , P(CH 3 ) 2 Cl 3 , XeO 2 , and XeOF 2 2. Are following plots of radial wavefunctions or radial probability functions. It is known that the following three plots corresponding to n = 3. Please label the orbitals. 3. For molecule NOSF, N is the central atom while S, O and F are all bonded to the central atom. Based on the octet rule, (a) Write all possible Lewis structures for NSOF and (b) Assign formal charges to all atoms in those Lewis structures you have. Based on the formal charges and your chemical knowledge, (c) Give the most likely dominant Lewis structure in the resonance. 4. Give the expected hybridization of P, O, and Sb in Cl 3 P-O-SbCl 5 . The P-O-Sb angle is 165 o . 5. Please give the full and abbreviated electron configurations for Fe, Fe
