We often collect small samples of gases in the laboratory by bubbling the gas into a bottle or flask containing water. Explain why the gas becomes saturated with water vapor and how we must take the presence of water vapor into account when calculating the properties of the gas sample.
January 20 th Resonance Structures You can ‘push’ electrons from bond to bond to change the structure These resonance structures show the breaking of a double bond in one place and the formation in the other. The electrons freed from breaking the double bond are returned to the Oxygen it was bonding. The new double bond gains electrons from the valence electrons around the oxygen that is forming the bond. Resonance Theory: 1) Whether the resonance structure is a true representation of the molecule. 2) A true representation of the molecule is a hybrid of all of the resonance structures
