Problem 59P

PROBLEM 59P

Write the Lewis structure for each molecule. These molecules do not follow the octet rule.

(a) BCl3

(b) NO2

(c) BH3

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 59P

Step method to draw the Lewis dot structure of BCl3.

Step 1: Find valence e- in all atoms. Add them together.

B-3

Cl-7x3=21

Total=24

Step 2: Find octet e- for each atom and add them together.

B-6 ( exception from octet rule)

Cl-8x3=24

Total=30

Step 3: Gives you bonding e-. Subtract step 1 total from step 2

30-24=6e-

Step 4 of 5
