Lewis Structures and Formal Charges
Three possible Lewis structures for the thiocyanate ion, NCS–, are
[N―C≡S]– [N═C═S]– [N≡C―S]–
(a) Determine the formal charges in each structure.
(b) Based on the formal charges, which Lewis structure is the dominant one?
The cyanate ion, NCO–, has three possible Lewis structures: (a) Draw these three structures and assign formal charges in each, (b) Which Lewis structure is dominant?
Reproduction a) 2 types in animals b) asexual i) production of offspring whose genes come from one parent (1) a clone (2) requires only mitotic division (3) does not require fertilization ii) many types of asexual reproduction in animals (1) fission (a) one animal breaks...
