Boron has 3 valence electrons and fluorine has 7 valence electrons. The total number of valence electrons = 3 + (3×7) = 24 electrons.B is the central atom and will form three bonds with 3 Fcorrect! e.H O FThe Lewis structure of the compound H O F:Fluorine will never form a double bond. With its seven valence electrons no double bond. e)HOFf.HC FOFCHOCarbon has 4 valence electrons, Hydrogen has 1 valence electron, Oxygen has 6 valence electrons and fluorine has 7 valence electrons. The total number of valence electrons = 4 + 1+ 6 + 7 = 18 electrons.C is the central atom and will form 4 bonds, 1 single bond with 1 H and 1 F and one double bond with O.10Copyright © 2017 by Thomas Edison State University.

Correct! g.F FNFNF3Nitrogen has 5 valence electrons and fluorine has 7 valence electrons. The total number of valence electrons = 5 + (3×7) = 26 electrons.N is the central atom and will form three bonds with 3 F and have a lone pair of electrons on it. correct! (Reference: Chang 9.47)8.Classify the following substances as ionic compounds or covalent compounds containing discrete molecules: CH4, KF, CO, SiCl4, BaCl2.(5 points)CH4=This is a covalent compound formed by the bonding between two non-metal elements - Carbon and 4 Hydrogen atoms. 11Copyright © 2017 by Thomas Edison State University.

KF =This is an ionic compound formed by the bonding between a metal and non-metal atoms - Potassium (K) which is a metal, and Fluorine (F) a non-metal. CO =This is a covalent compound formed by the bonding between two non-metal elements - Carbon with 4 covalent electrons, and Oxygen with 2 covalent electrons each SiCl4=This is an ionic compound formed by the bonding between a metalloid Silicon (Si) and 2 atoms of Chlorine (Cl) a non-metal.BaCl2 =This is an ionic compound formed by the bonding between a metal and non-metal atoms - Barium (Ba) which is a metal, and 2 atoms of Chlorine (Cl) a non-metal.(Reference: Chang 9.73)correct!9.Predict the geometries of the following species using the VSEPR method: (a) PCl3, (b) CHCl3, (c) SiH4, (d)TeCl4. (12 points)a.PCl3In the PCl3molecule, Phosphorous atom has five valence electron andout of five, three electrons are bonded electron with three chlorineatoms and two electrons are remained as unpaired, so, overall PCl3molecule has one pair of non-bonded electron and three pairs ofbonded electrons. These four pairs of electrons are arranged to givethe tetrahedral geometry of the molecule and shape of trigonalpyramidal in accordance with the VSEPR theory. correct!b.CHCl3In the CHCl3 molecule, the carbon atom has four valence electron andout of four, three electrons are bonded with three chlorine atoms andthe remaining one electron is bonded with one hydrogen, so overallCHCl3 molecule has four pairs of bonded electrons. These four pairs ofelectrons are arranged to give the tetrahedral geometry as well the
