Problem 48P

PROBLEM 48P

Write the Lewis structure for each molecule.

(a) CH4

(b) NF3

(c) OF2

(d) H2O

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 48P

Step 1:

(a)CH4

              In CH4, the central atom is C, surrounded by four H atoms.

              6C 1s2 2s2 2p2   1H 1s1

        Total number of valence electrons = 4 + 1(4) = 8

        The Lewis structure of CH4 is,

        

Step 2:

(b)NF3

7N 1s2 2s2 2p3    9F 1s2 2s2 2p5

Total number of valence electrons = 5 + 7(3) =26

Lewis structure of NF3
