Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2can u draw the lewis structure?

diamondboy

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ok so lets walk through that

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1first off do you know how to draw the lewis structure? You need to look at the number of valence electrons, beryllium has 2 valence electrons, and chlorine has 7, dw:1442608897751:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so can u do it now?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1could you draw out the lewis structure for both chlorine and beryllium @WhatEven ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ok so lets do it this way....how many valence electrons does Cl has

diamondboy

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ok...multiply it by 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2with that in mind how many valence electrons does Be have

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I remember this a little, In order for an atom to bind to another it must have 8 electrons in it's outer shell/ octet so chlorine is a (can't remember the name) atom and will bind with an atom that has one making that atom a (Can't remember the name) atom

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2that's the lewis structure

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2and so it has a molecular geometry of? (Hint: CD2 = linear. Note: CD could be any atom)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Uhmm, one sec lemme look at the question again

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I don't know what linear etc would look like...

Photon336

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@whateven Linear looks like this dw:1442610553443:dw

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So is my answer linear

Photon336
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1why do you think it's linear?

Photon336
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1that's the answer but why

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Because its two circles with one in the middle o.o

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@WhatEven Lone pair means a pair of electrons that does not participate in bonding for example. in NH3 ammonia. dw:1442611152163:dw Lone pairs cause the angles to become smaller between atoms and change the shape. dw:1442611209066:dw Because Beryllium does not have any lone pairs, the bond angle is 180 say if it did. dw:1442611259250:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0those new ones confused me

diamondboy
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2which one do u understand well?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So what about this one?

Photon336

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@WhatEven draw it out for us and show us what it is here and tell what you think it is I think @diamondboy did a good job explaining the concepts.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I can draw linear like this, I understand it that way, but I need to know how the other,s would look and what number of valence electrons they have and I don't know either..

Photon336
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you can at least try and draw it

diamondboy
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2@WhatEven okay we can do this together...I am currently working on my assignment but I would put it on hold so we can do this.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well tell me how to set them up, like two dot's out side a line And I don't want to stop you from your school...

diamondboy

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I don't want to leave u without the understanding of how this works. Are u with me?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2So how mand valence electron does hydrogen and oxygen have

diamondboy
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2what about Hydrogen

diamondboy
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Ok so hydrogen has 1 and altogether we have 7 valence electrons all we need to do is distribute them around H2O

diamondboy

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2dw:1442612913257:dw now do u see it?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I believe so, but I thought it had to have 8?

diamondboy
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2well it doesn't go like that for all of them

diamondboy
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2for example oxygen in this formula is electron deficient. Assuming H had more than 1 valence electron we would have made use of double bonds to get Oxygen in octet or 8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2now can u fill the diagram and let me see

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0dw:1442613121082:dw so seven right?

diamondboy
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yep but u are almost there

diamondboy
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2like I said hydrogen has just 1 valence electrons so give each hydrogen 1 and the rest to oxygen

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ohh Ok sodw:1442613400403:dw ?

diamondboy
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2dw:1442613495727:dw

diamondboy
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2do u see what I am saying now?

diamondboy
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so now to make hydrogen happy we need to give it one more electron to make it happy. dw:1442613643525:dw

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, but why do they have to separate that way? Why not evenly?

diamondboy
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2hmm like why don't they have even distribution of electrons?

diamondboy
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ok because for hydrogen all we need is just one electron to fill it's octet...its d only wierd kid on the periodic table

diamondboy
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so when it bonds it takes only one electron to make itself ok.

diamondboy
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2As for oxygen....it would have loved to be octet or 8 but it's hooked up to the wrong element

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I (sorry I have to go I'll coto leave this open and come back

diamondboy
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ok we forgot that the total number of valence electron is 8 not 7 because we have 2 hydrogen's or with each one having one valence electron dw:1442613901250:dw
