Problem 47P

PROBLEM 47P

Write the Lewis structure for each molecule.

(a) PH3

(b) SCl2

(c) F2

(d) HI

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 47P

Step 1:

(a)PH3

In PH3 the central atom is P, surrounded by three H atoms.

15P [Ne] 3s2 3p3    1H 1s1

Total number of valence electrons = 5 + 1(3) =8

Lewis structure of PH3

Step 2:

(b)SCl2

In SCl2, the central atom is S, surrounded by Cl atom.

16S [Ne] 3s2 3p4    17Cl [Ne] 3s2 3p5

Total number of valence electrons = 6 + 7 (2)= 20

Lewis structure of SCl2
