Do resonance structures always contribute equally to the overall structure of a molecule? Explain.

Solution 27E Step 1 of 1 No, because, since a overall structure is given by different resonance structures, it doesn’t always occur that each of them respects all the following rules: 1- The more covalent bond are in the structure, the more stable the resonance structure will be 2- The less formal charges are in the structure, the more stable the resonance structure will be 3- In case of formal charges having different charges, they have to be the closer as possible, otherwise that resonance structure will be unstable 4- When formal charge cannot be avoided, negative formal...
