Problem 9SAQ

Which is the correct Lewis structure for nitrogen trifluoride?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 9SAQ Let’s try to demonstrate the correct answer is for letter c) Step 1 of 3 Lewis structures represent the valence electrons that an atom shares or transfer when forming a bond in order to attain noble gas electron configuration. Nitrogen belongs to the group VA, so it has 5 electrons in its valence shell and it needs 3 electron to respect the octet rule. Step 2 of 3 Fluorine has seven electrons in its valence shell because it belongs to group VII A. So it needs one electron to complete the valence shell and respect the octet rule.

Step 3 of 3
