Problem 12SAQ

A Lewis structure for the acetate ion is shown here:

Which structure is the best resonance structure for the acetate ion?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 12SAQ Let’s try to solve for the letter d) Step 1 of 2 The resonance structures are two or more Lewis structures representing a molecule having the same arrangement of atoms (so the molecule has the same skeleton), but the bond’s arrangement changes on passing from one to another. Generally speaking, a structure can be converted to another by moving couples of electrons. These movements can be represented by using curved arrows. Non-bonding electrons can turned to be in bonding electrons and vice versa. The more are the resonance formulas, the more stable will be the whole molecule (or ion).
