Unformatted text preview: 1 CHECKLIST for Drawing a Legitimate Lewis Structure 1. Correct TOTAL number of valence electrons add or take away electrons to account for or + net charge (ion) 2. Sum of the valence electrons around each H atom is two N, O, or F atom is 8 C atom is usually 8 (but sometimes 6 a carbocation ) 3. All non-zero formal charges must be shown (usually 1 and +1) Summary of Critical Points from Last Class Summary of Critical Points from Last Class +1 0 - 1 C C Z Z Z Note: The two other ways to draw a carbocation are very uncommon. C Z Z Z Z Z C Z Z C Z Z Z C Z C Z Z Z Z C Z C Z N Z N Z Z N Z four ways ( draw the two that are missing ) draw three ways draw two ways O draw three ways draw two ways draw one way X Z X Z X Z two ways (less common) draw one way draw one way (an anionic atom) Preview of this Class Today we will learn about s and p orbitals and that a bond can be described as an overlap of two orbitals z axis y axis z axis y axis x axis z axis y axis x axis z axis y axis x axis 2s 2p x 2p y 2p z Nucleus of atom s orbital ( s pherical) Possible path of an electron in an s orbital p orbital (double p ear shaped) Possible path of an electron in a p orbital Node (plane where electron cannot be found) 90% chance of finding electron inside this sphere 95% chance of finding electron inside this larger sphere Think of an orbital as the home-base territory of an electron Preview of this Class What is an electron orbital ?

For simplicity, we will ignore this small lobe, and focus on the main lobe for now. 1 Play-dough Demo #1 Which are possible identities of the following neutral molecules shown as orbitals?
