9.4 Lewis Dot Structures Lewis’ dot diagrams keep track of the valence electrons in a molecule. The Lewis structure: - only represents valence electrons - represents the bonding pair of electrons as either a line of a pair of dots - represents the remaining (lone pair) electrons as pairs of dots on individual atoms, i.e. not shared
