Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

CEM 141 Lecture 27: Introduction to Lewis Structures Dr. Jian Hu th November 7 , 2016 Review of Covalent Bonding  Valence electrons of one atom are constantly attracted to the nucleus of another  The nuclei of both atoms attract electrons as they are held in between the two nuclei, causing the two atoms to stay together as a unit  The electrostatic force that causes these subatomic particles to attract is what drives covalent bonding  The system becomes stabilized when a covalent bond forms, and the potential energy decreases  Bond energy is determined by the depth of the potential energy curve on the vertical axis; bond length is determined by the position of the potential energy curve on the horizontal axis  Carb
