    that`s CH3COO...

    there is no negative charge in the equation; it`s CH3OO

    then it's not possible, carbon must be bonded with 1 of the oxygens, which leaves only a single or double bond with the other oxygen...however i have never seen an oxygen do this |dw:1352781999018:dw|

    Im pretty sure you're missing a negative charge on your original formula

    Sometimes acetate ion is written as CH3OO-

    the neutral compound you proposed cannot exist because it would violate the octet rule

    it said i have to draw it and it`s not multiple choice;

    not possible to draw it lol, im telling you, only one option is to have a negative charge on the oxygen

    I am pretty sure that the compound is CH3COO-.

    here the full question CH3OO (unpaired electron on terminal oxygen) Draw the molecule by placing atoms on the grid and connecting them with bonds. Include all nonbonding electrons.

    exactly, unpaired electron on terminal, which means extra lonepair (aka negative charge)

    yea, either the problem is missing a negative charge, or it's supposed to be CH3COO-, either way you will never deal with CH3OO- until you get into higher inorganic chemistry

    acetate ion is commonly dealt with at the basic 101 level
