Determine whether each compound is ionic or covalent and write the appropriate Lewis structure.
(b) CHFO (carbon is central)
Step 1 of 3
Ionic bonds are formed between atoms when electrons are transferred from one atom to another. Ionic bond is a bond between nonmetals and metals .Covalent bonds are formed between atoms when pairs of electrons are shared between atoms. A covalent bond is between two nonmetals.
Lewis structure :
It is the ionic compound .
Potassium loses one valence electron getting charge of -1 and get paired with sulphur which is having 2 unpaired electrons forming the negative charge that is -2.
b) CHFO (carbon is central)
It has a covalent bond First, Carbon (C)your least electronegative atom goes in the center and is surrounded by Hydrogen H),...
