The figure shows the behavior of Pt and Ag cathodes at which reduction of H3O to H2(g) occurs. Explain why the two curves are not superimposed.

Resonance Compounds can have more than one Lewis structure that represents them correctly. The biggest difference between structures are where the electrons are placed in each one. These are called resonance structures or resonance forms. They are not different compounds but they are drawn in different ways. Resonance molecules will usually show characteristics of the different resonance structures even though it is something completely different. The actual molecule will be a resonance hybrid of the resonance forms. Since the actual molecule is a hybrid, this means the individual resonance structures are not completely accurate, and are not real. This can be compared to a rhino. The hybridization (or coming together) of a dragon and a unicorn will create a rhino. Even though dragons
