Unformatted text preview: I. Molecular Structure Exp. 12 Date Performed: 4/14/11 Name: Breanna Jameson Date Submitted: 4/21/11 Chemistry 1045L-35 Tong Chen II. Purpose In this experiment we learned how to draw Lewis structures, which gives a step- by-step way to construct molecular models. Lewis structures are based on the concept that every atom is most stable when its electron configuration matches that of the nearest noble gas, or the octet rule. This lab allowed us to practice our drawing of molecular structures and let us use a protractor to determine the bond angles of the molecular structures. III. Procedure No changes. Dillon, Stephanie.
