Unformatted text preview: 1. Given the following Lewis structures: All atoms obey the octet rule. Note that lone pairs are not shown, but must be taken into consideration to answer the question. Rank the structures in order of N/O bond energies from weakest to strongest . Your answer should be a four letter &quot;word&quot; made up of the letters A, B, C and D. For example, if you think A has the weakest N/O bond, followed by B, C and then D (strongest), your response should be the &quot;word&quot; ABCD. ADCB 2. Which atom bears the negative end of the bond dipole in each of the following bonds? Bond Negative Atom Br-O O O N-I N N N-S P N 3. - Refer to Table 5-1 and the discussion in Section 5-2 of the textbook that relates the bond type to the difference in electronegativities to determine the bond type of each of the following bonds. Bond Type Si-P Covalent Covalent C-F Polar Covalent Polar Covalent Sn-Cl Polar Covalent Polar Covalent S-Se Covalent Covalent 4. Consider the following set of bonds: a) Ga-Cl b) Ge-Cl c) S-Cl d) P-Cl...
