Problem 5Q

PROBLEM 5Q

How can the Lewis model be used to determine the formula of ionic compounds? You may explain this with an example.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 5Q

Nitrogen is in Group 5 (sometimes called Group V or Group 15). Since it is in Group 5 it will have 5 valence electrons. When you draw the Lewis structure for Nitrogen you'll put five "dots" or valence electrons around the element symbol (N).

Carbon :

Carbon is in Group 4 (sometimes called 14). Since it is in Group 4 it will have 4 valence electrons. When you draw the Lewis structure for Carbon You'll put four "dots" or valence electrons around the element symbol (C).

Chlorine:

the Lewis dot structure for Chlorine (Cl). Note: Chlorine is in Group 17 (sometimes called Group VII or 7A). Since it is in Group 7 it will have 7 valence electrons. When you draw the Lewis structure for Chlorine you'll put seven "dots" or valance electrons around the element symbol (Cl).

Argon : the Lewis dot structure for Argon(Ar). Note: Argon is in Group 18 (sometimes called Group VIII or 8A). Since it is in Group 8 it will have 8 valence electrons. When you draw the Lewis structure for Argon you'll put eight "dots" or valence electrons around the element symbol (Ar).
