Problem 2P

Draw Lewis structures for the following compounds.

(a) ammonia, NH3

(b) water, H2O

(c) hydroniumion, H3O+

(d) propane, C3H8

(e) dimethylamine,CH3NHCH3

(f) diethyl ether, CH3CH2OCH2CH3

(g) 1-chloropropane, CH3CH2CH2Cl

(h) propan-2-ol,CH3CH(OH)CH3

(i) borane, BH3

(j) boron trifluoride, BF3

Explain what is unusual about the bonding in the compounds in parts (i) and (j).

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution:

We have to draw the Lewis structure of the following molecules.

Step 1

  1. Lewis structure of  ammonia (NH3)

In NH3 , the central atom is N, surrounded by three H atoms.

7N 1s2 2s2 2p3       1H 1s1

Total number valence electrons in NH3 = 5 + 1(3) = 8
