Problem 107P

PROBLEM 107P

Each molecule listed contains an expanded octet (10 or 12 electrons) around the central atom. Write the Lewis structure for each molecule.

(a) PF5

(b) SF4

(c) SeF4

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 107P

Here, we are going to write the lewis structure for the given molecules.

Step 1:

The Lewis dot structure provide a picture of bonding in molecules and ions in terms of the shared pairs of electrons and the octet rule. While such a picture may not explain the bonding and behaviour of a molecule completely, it does help in understanding the formation and properties of a molecule to a large extent. Writing of Lewis dot structures of molecules is, therefore, very useful.
