PROBLEM 3Q

In the Lewis model, what is an octet? What is a duet? What is a chemical bond?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Problem 3Q

In the Lewis model, what is an octet? What is a duet? What is a chemical bond?

                                                              Step by step solution

Step 1 of 2

Lewis structure:

Structure of a molecule in which bonding between the atoms and of lone pairs of electrons shown is called Lewis structure.

The procedure to draw the Lewis structure of the molecule is as follows:

       - Sum the valence electrons from all the atoms in a molecule.

       - Connect all the atoms with a single bond.

       - Complete the octet around all the atoms bonded to the central atom.

       - Place leftover electrons on the central atom.

       - Try multiple bonds, if there are not enough electrons to give the central atom an octet.
