1 Lewis Structure: chlorite ion ClO 2 1- What is ER? What is VE? What is SP? What is LP? Determining Formal Charges and Oxidation #s Difference between FC & Ox # is in the determination of “possession #”. FC: divide the bonding electrons up between bonded atoms ( i.e., consider the bonding to be purely covalent. ) Ox #: the more electronegative atom gets both of the bonding electrons ( i.e ., consider the bonding to be purely ionic. ) Section 5.8 Lewis Structure: Sulfite Ion SO 3 2- S O O O ER = 4*8 = 32 e-s VE = 6 + 6 +6 +6 +2 = 26 e-s 6 e-s / 2 = 3 bonds Section 5.8 20 e-s / 2 = 10 lone pairs FC: divide the bonding electrons up between bonded atoms.
