PROBLEM 31P

Write the Lewis structure for each ion.

(a) Al3+

(b) Mg2+

(c) Se2−

(d) N3−

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 31P

Step 1:

(a)Lewis Structure of Al3+

The electronic configuration of Al is, 13Al [Ne] 3s2 3p1

The Lewis structure of Al is

But in Al3+ the electronic configuration resemble electronic configuration of Ne i.e 1s2 2s2 2p6.

Hence the Lewis dot structure of Al3+ resemble with the Lewis structure of Ne.

Step 2:

 (c)Lewis dot structure of Mg2+

The electronic configuration of Mg is, 12Al [Ne] 3s2 

The Lewis structure of Mg is,

Mg :

But in Mg2+ the electronic configuration resemble electronic configuration of Ne i.e 1s2 2s2 2p6.

Hence the Lewis dot structure of Mg2+ resemble with the Lewis structure of Ne.
