PROBLEM 27P

Write a generic Lewis structure for the halogens. Do the halogens tend to gain or lose electrons in chemical reactions? How many?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 27P

Step 1:

Here, we have to write the generic Lewis structure for halogens and determine if the halogens tend to gain or lose electrons in chemical reactions? If so, How many?

A Lewis structure is a graphic representation of the electron distribution around atoms. They illustrate the lone pairs of electrons in molecules. They are also called as Lewis dot diagrams and they are used as a simple way to show the configuration of atoms within a molecule.

The halogens are five non-metallic elements found in group 7A of the periodic table. The term "halogen" means "salt-former" and compounds containing halogens are called "salts", i.e They produce salts when reacted with metals. All halogens have 7 electrons in their outer shells.

The generic lewis structure of halogens is :

Step 2:

The Halogens are:

1. Fluorine(F) :

The lewis structure for F is :

2. Chlorine(Cl) :

The lewis structure for Cl is :

                                

3. Bromine(Br) :

The lewis structure for Br is :

                        

4. Iodine(I) :

The lewis structure for I is :

5. Astatine(At) :

The lewis structure for At is :
