We know that it would have to be H - OH because hydrogen can only form one BOND. Hydrogen is always on the outside of molecule. Therefore, oxygen would have to be in the middle. To draw the Lewis structure, we first put dots in for VALENCE electrons. Valence electrons are electrons available in the outer shell of an atom. Hydrogen has only 1 VALENCE electron and gets 1 dot each representing the lone electron associated with the hydrogen proton. Oxygen has 6 VALENCE electrons. A full outer shell for oxygen would have 8 VALENCE electrons, 4 groups of 2. Therefore, we draw 2 paired electrons and 2 unpaired electrons. To form a stable compound, hydrogen would like to have 2 more electrons in its outer shell to complete an octet of 8 electrons. Both hydrogen and oxygen will be able to have their VALENCE shell of electrons filled if they each SHARE their unpaired electrons with each other. This way, they each have a pair of electrons in COVALENT BOND between them. In the top illustration, line was drawn between unpaired electron dots. This was re - drawn for neatness sake in bottom drawing. By bonding covalently with another atom, each atom has a full VALENCE shell of electrons and remains electron neutral. The ammonia solution used as a cleaning solution is ammonia gas NH 3 which is dissolved in water. This can be expressed by the equation NH 3 + H 2 0 - > NH 4 + OH -. You are familiar with the pungent odor of ammonia gas, which is also used as a respiratory stimulant. In this case, nitrogen is the central atom. Nitrogen is in group V - of the periodic table. It has a total of 5 VALENCE electrons with 3 unpaired electrons which are available for COVALENT bonding. Hydrogen is in group IA and has one unpaired electron available for COVALENT bonding. Here line is drawn between dots representing electrons involved in each of the COVALENT bonds. When these electrons are covalently SHARE, nitrogen has a total of 8 VALENCE electrons and each hydrogen has 2 VALENCE electrons. The Lewis dot drawing makes it clear that nitrogen has completed its octet with 3 COVALENT bonds with hydrogen and 1 lone pair. Nitrogen now with its full octet of VALENCE electrons is isoelectric with noble gas neon. Hydrogen with 2 electrons in its outer shell is isoelectric with noble gas helium.

Lewis Structures for Polyatomic Ions

Polyatomic ionA charge species are composed of two or more atoms covalently bond, or of metal complex that act as single unit in acid - base chemistry or in formation of salts. Also know as molecular ion. The total number of electrons represented in the Lewis structure is equal to the sum of the number of valence electrons in each individual atom. Non - valence electrons are not represented in Lewis structures. After the total number of available electrons has been determine, electrons must be placed into structure. Lewis structures for polyatomic ions are drawn by the same methods that we have already learned. When counting electrons, negative ions should have extra electrons place in their Lewis structures; positive ions should have fewer electrons than uncharged molecule. When Lewis structure of ion is write, entire structure is placed in brackets, and charge is written as superscript on upper right, outside of brackets. For example, consider the ammonium ion, NH 4 +, which contains 9 - 1 = 8 electrons. One electron is subtracted because the entire molecule has + 1 charge.

Phosphorus pentachloride, PCl 5

Phosphorus pentachloride is an exception to the octet rule. You can see Lewis structure of PCl 3 in practice problems below. Because the chlorine atom only needs one electron to complete its valence shell, it shares one and only one electron with phosphorus, so in PCl 5, phosphorus is surrounded by a total of ten electrons. It does this by using its d - shell electrons. More 3 - dimensional structure is shown on right. Three chlorines are in the plane and the line containing the other two cuts through the center of that triangle and is perpendicular to it. Arrangement is called trigonal bipyramid.

Formal Way

In formal way, we find how many electrons we have, how many each atom need,sss how many of those are bonding, and how many are lone pairs. This info can then be used to determine the Lewis Dot Structure. Step 1: Find valence e - for all atoms. Add them together. Step 2: Find octet e - for each atom and add them together. Step 3: Find bonding e -. Subtract step 1 total from step 2 step 4: Find number of bonds by dividing the number of bonding electrons by 2 step 5: rest are nonbonding pairs. Subtract bonding electrons from valence electrons. Use information from step 4 and 5 to draw the H 2 O Lewis Structure.
