PROBLEM 62P

Determine the number of electron groups around the central atom for each molecule.

(a) CH2Cl2

(b) SBr2

(c) H2S

(d) PCl3

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 62P

Step 1:

Here, we need to determine the number of electron groups around the central atom for each molecule.

(a) CH2Cl2 :

CH2Cl2 (Dichloromethane), is made up of C, H and Cl. Among these, C is least electronegative and hence is the central atom. The lewis dot structure diagram for this compound is :

We can see there are 4 electron pairs around the central atom.

(b) SBr2 :

SBr2 (Sulfur Dibromide), is made up of S and Br. Among these, S is least electronegative and hence is the central atom. The lewis dot structure diagram for this compound is :

We can see there are 4 electron pairs around the central atom.

(c) H2S :

H2S (Dihydrogen Sulfide), is made up of S and H. Among these, S is least electronegative and hence is the central atom. The lewis dot structure diagram for this compound is :

We can see there are 4 electron pairs around the central atom.

(d) PCl3 :

PCl3 (Phosphorus trichloride), is made up of P and Cl. Among these, P is least electronegative and hence is the central atom. The lewis dot structure diagram for this compound is :

We can see there are 4 electron pairs around the central atom.
