please i hve many doubts in this, will u help me?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes it is
UnkleRhaukus
  • UnkleRhaukus
so oxygen has 6 electrons, and nitrogen has 5, a full electron shell will be eight electrons
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes totally 17 electrons involved

As 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

how do we decide all these, we just cnt place the electrons anywhere right///

|dw:1350907518373:dw| the arrow does it represent a coordinate bond?
UnkleRhaukus
  • UnkleRhaukus
your oxgen (on the right side) want some more electrons, i dont know about the arrow

yeah the lone pair, u have no idea about dative covaelnt bonding?

Dative 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.

in nitrogen dioxide, nitrogen is giving 2 electrons to oxygen, so then that is a coordinate bond..i am just confused..
Vincent-Lyon.Fr
  • Vincent-Lyon.Fr
I don't think so. I would write:|dw:1350908582427:dw| Here, all bonds are formed with 2 electrons from different atoms.

You 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
