CH3OO (unpaired electron on terminal oxygen)
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|
i tried that but that`s wrong;;;
Im pretty sure you're missing a negative charge on your original formula
Sometimes acetate ion is written as CH3OO-
i thought so too but it wrong;
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)
i did it what u draw like that but it`said wrong o-o
did u indicate the C-H bonds too? i did CH3 just to save time
maybe program problem; i will talk to prof...
yes i did it all the drawing
what class is this btw?
chem 101 o.o;
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
Try this. H2C=O | O-H
oh i got it o-o it was|dw:1352782861738:dw|
ur not suppost to put negative sign... -_- stupid program
thanks for helping guys :)
why would you not put a negative sign in the lewis dot structure lol
i have no clue but i`m FINISHED!
that's one weird program
np, glad we got that resolved
