General | Latest Info

No 2 involves sp 2 type of hybridization. The most simple way to determine hybridization of NO 2 is by drawing the Lewis structure and counting the number of bonds and lone electron pairs around nitrogen atom. You will find that in nitrogen Dioxide there are 2 sigma bonds and 1 lone electron pair. Now if we apply the hybridization rule, then it states that if the sum of the number of sigma bonds, lone pair of electrons and odd electrons is equal to three, then hybridization is sp 2. We will discuss this topic in detail below.

Lewis Structures: The Basics

The Lewis Structure of NO 2 is drawn in this tutorial step by step. You can learn the basics of how to draw the Lewis Structure properly from this example. This is a special case of Lewis Structure drawing because, there are unpaired electrons in valance electrons. You will see this case when we draw the Lewis Structure of NO 2 in the next sections. The following steps are required to draw NO 2 Lewis Structure and they are explained in detail in this tutorial. Find Total number of electrons of valance shells of nitrogen and oxygen atoms Total electrons pairs Center atom selection Put lone pairs on atoms Check stability and minimize charges on atoms by converting lone pairs to bonds. Drawing correct Lewis Structure is important for drawing resonance structures.

The formal charge for {matheq}{O}{endmatheq} = 6 - 6 - = - 1. The formal charge for {matheq}{S}{endmatheq} = 6 - 2 - = + 1. There is yet another structure that does not satisfy the octet rule, but it's reasonable structure:
