Nitrogen is present in almost all proteins and plays an important role in both biochemical applications and industrial applications. Nitrogen forms strong bonds because of its ability to form triple bonds with its self, and other elements. Thus, there is a lot of energy in compounds of nitrogen. 100 years ago, little was known about nitrogen. Now, nitrogen is commonly used to preserve food, and as fertilizer.

The only things smaller than atoms are their subatomic particles; electrons, protons, and neutrons. Not even under complex microscopic can we view individual electrons that surround atoms nuclei. The Lewis Dot Structure is visual which represents the outermost shell of Electrons, also know as Valence Electrons, and possible covalent bonds within atom or molecule. These Valence Electrons are negatively charged and are attracted to positively charged nucleus, made up of neutrons and protons. Keep in mind that in reality, electrons are constantly moving around the nucleus and are not rooted in one place as portrayed in 2D structure. Lewis Dot Structure is draw series of dots, lines, and atomic symbols and provides structure for the way that atom or molecule is arrange. The Lewis Dot Structure can be made of a single atom, covalent compound, or polyatomic ion.


Lewis Structures

Periodic table has all the information needed to draw the Lewis dot structure. Each group, or column, is indicated by roman numeral which represents the number of valence electrons. This is applicable to entire group. For example, all elements which fall within the first column, or Group I, have one valence electron. All elements in Group II have two valence electrons, all way up to VIII, eight valence electrons. Properties are also consistent across rows, or periods, of periodic table. Periods are indicated by number, 1 2 3, etc. Which represents the energy level, or shell of electrons. The First Period, or row, has only one energy level that can hold a total of two electrons. Period 2, with a second shell, can hold a total of eight electrons, also know as the octet rule. Period 3 and SO forth can hold more than eight electrons. Periodic tables also convey electronegativity. Most electronegative elements are located in the uppermost right corner OF period table and decrease in electronegativity as you go down Group or more left OF period. Throughout drawing Lewis dot structures, periodic table will be a strong reference point when working with electrons, covalent bonding, and polyatomic ions.
