GENERAL CHEMISTRY PAGE 14 OF 22 Example : ICl 3 Oxyacids – “ Acids with Oxygen In oxyacids, the hydrogens are attached to an oxygen Example : HNO 3 Example : H 3 PO 4 Resonance Often more than one Lewis structure for a molecule or a polyatomic ion can be drawn No single Lewis structure can perfectly describe the actual structure of the molecule The actual molecule will have some characteristics of all the valid Lewis structures we can draw Lewis structures often do not accurately represent the electron distribution in a molecule
