Problem 64P

PROBLEM 64P

Determine the number of bonding groups and the number of lone pairs for each of the molecules in. The sum of these should equal your answers to.

(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.
