    I have CO2, where O -- C --O with \(\delta \)- for O, dan 2\(\delta \)+ for C, how to determine \(\delta \) ??? Why 2\(\delta \)+ for C? why \(\delta \)- for O ??

    That means partial negative per oxygen and since there's two oxygen you gotta have a partial 2 to make the molecule neutral

    NO. It's often used to show partial +/- charges on molecules. Electronegativity is "X" or the Greek letter "chi"

    It's more complex than that but Idk if it's relevant. Unless this is for o-chem or p-chem.
