General Chemistry Challenge Problem: Molecular Geometry and Bonding Theories
A compound composed of 2.1% H, 29.8% N, and 68.1% O has a molar mass of approximately 50g/mol.
(A). What is the molecular formula of compound?
(B). What is its Lewis structure if H is bonded to O?
(C). What is the geometry of the molecule?
(D). What is the hybridization of the orbitals around the N atom?
(E). How many sigma and how many pi bonds are there in the molecule?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1(A) Oh ok well to find the molecular formula just take integer multiples of the masses of each specific element and divide by 50 then multiply by x100 to find your percentage value if it matches up you have the right molecular formula i believe this comes out to HNO2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1(D) 3 areas of electron density so im pretty sure sp2 hybridization

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0B) is correct. C) yea they just want the electron domain. Oops forgot to tell you. Is it trigonal planar or tetrahedral? D) is correct E) is correct

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Which of the 2 do you think it is?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Trigonal planar and tetrahedral both have bent as their molecular geometry.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I think it is trigonal planar due it only having 1 lone pair, but my knowledge of this has become quite rusty.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yea it is. It has 3 electron domains on the central atom N.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and it actually fits a trigonal planar geometry if you look at it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Not 4 because H is not bonded to N. Nice job! All correct!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yea, I know you did not because you had a fast response rate and I picked the one that I could not find in Google lol.
