Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so oxygen has 6 electrons, and nitrogen has 5, a full electron shell will be eight electrons

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1As there is an odd number of electrons, there will be a lone electron on the nitrogen atom. You have to place the other 16 electrons in a more traditional

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0your oxgen (on the right side) want some more electrons, i dont know about the arrow

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah the lone pair, u have no idea about dative covaelnt bonding?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Dative covalent bonds appear when you form compounds from other molecules such as:dw:1350908177659:dw Both electrons of the new bond belonged to the N atom before the bond was made. In a normal covalent bond, each atom provides 1 electron.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0in nitrogen dioxide, nitrogen is giving 2 electrons to oxygen, so then that is a coordinate bond..i am just confused..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I don't think so. I would write:dw:1350908582427:dw Here, all bonds are formed with 2 electrons from different atoms.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You can only make one double bond and one single bond around the N, not two double bonds. You cannot have 9 electrons around N as shown above. You can have less than 8, not more than 8. This is a paramagnetic molecule, with an unpaired electron. http://www.kentchemistry.com/links/bonding/LewisDotTutorials/NO2.htm
