What is the difference between lone pair and bonding pair electrons?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 6Q

Lone pair of electrons :

A lone pair refers to a pair of valence electrons that are not shared with another atom and is sometimes called a non-bonding pair. Lone pairs are found in the outermost electron shell of atoms. They can be identified by using a Lewis structure. Electron pairs are therefore considered lone pairs if two electrons are paired but are not used in chemical bonding. Thus, the number of lone pair electrons plus the number of bonding electrons equals the total number of valence electrons around an atom.

Bond pair of electrons :

A bond pair of electrons refers to pair of electrons involved in chemical bond .

The difference between...
