Unformatted text preview: Rules for drawing Lewis Structures: 1. Obtain the sum of the valence electrons from all of the atoms. Do not worry about keeping track of which electrons come from which atoms. It is the total number of electrons that is important. 2. Use one pair of electrons to form a bond between each pair of bound atoms. For convenience, a line (instead of a pair of dots) is generally used to indicate each pair of bonding electrons. 3. Arrange the remaining electrons to satisfy the duet rule for hydrogen and the octet rule for each second-row element. 7. Give the Lewis Structures of each of the following molecules: a. HF b. N 2 c. NH 3 d. CH 4 e. CF 4 f. NO 3...
