PROBLEM 100P

Write the Lewis structure for benzene, C6 H6, and draw a three-dimensional sketch of the molecule. The skeletal structure is the ring shown here. (Hint: The Lewis structure consists of two resonance structures.)

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 100P:

Step 1:

Here, we have to write the Lewis structure for benzene, C6H6, and draw a three-dimensional sketch of the molecule. The skeletal structure is the ring shown here. (Hint: The Lewis structure consists of two resonance structures.)

Benzene is an organic chemical compound with the chemical formula C6H6.The benzene molecule is composed of 6 carbon atoms joined in a ring with 1 hydrogen atom attached to each. Because it contains only carbon and hydrogen atoms, benzene is classed as a hydrocarbon.

The lewis structure of Benzene is :

Benzene has resonance lewis structure. In chemistry, resonance or mesomerism is a way of describing delocalized electrons within certain molecules or polyatomic ions where the bonding cannot be expressed by one single Lewis structure. i.e , When more than one Lewis structure can be drawn for a molecule, the molecule or ion is said to have resonance.

The resonance structures of benzene is :

The lewis structure of benzene is :
