Problem 3SAQ

Which is the correct Lewis structure for magnesium bromide?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 3SAQ We are going to demonstrate the correct answer is c) Step 1 of 3 Lewis structure of magnesium bromide: Magnesium is second group element and bromine is seventh group element. Thus we can expect that Magnesium and Bromine has 2 and 7 electrons in the valence shell respectively, and they can be represented with the following Lewis structures: To reach their stability and gain the octet, Magnesium has to lose 2 electrons, while Bromine has to acquire one.
