Have you tried drawing the lewis dot structure for all of these?
I think it is a
Did you draw the lewis dot structure for N2 and got a triple bond. Is that how you got a?
You there? :)
yes I have no Idea how to draw whatever you are talking about
You can't determine any triple bonding from these giving molecules unless you draw the lewis structure for them. Were you taught on drawing lewis structures before?
You should read your lessons and start drawing lewis structures. This video should help. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ZlnzyHahvo
Do you want me to go over lewis structure drawing for you?
https://assets.lincolninteractive.org/Courses/NN.SCI.301207.1.PE/Unit3/Lesson5/Snap7.bmp This is n2 right
so it would be A
You need to know lewis structures. In reality, you won't have access to internet when you are being tested on them.
I take online classes That was from our notes
Did they go over lewis structures?
no not really will you go over them with me
Sure. Let us draw N2 as an example.
First step: We know from N2 that there's two atoms of Nitrogen. Draw two atoms of N, and connect them with a single bond.
Second : Determine the valence electrons for each atom. However, both atoms are the same so there valence electrons should be the same.
Do you know how to determine an atom's valence electron?
Yes or no?
nitrogen has 5
Correct. How many all together?
10 valence electrons all together. However, how many electrons did we use up? We used up a bond and a bond consist of 2 electrons.|dw:1446673815079:dw|
so 8 left
Yes. Let's place 8 electrons around the molecules, which means 4 electrons around each atom.
Are you familiar with the octet rule?
Define the octet rule for me :)
elements tend to combine in such a way that each atom has eight electrons in its valence shell, giving it the same electronic configuration as a noble gas.
Correct. What are the specific elements that should obey this rule (octet rule)?
nitrogen doent follow
I'll say it. C N O F should obey the octet rule. Which means Nitrogen should obey the octet rule.
Currently, how many electrons do we have for both Nitrogens?
i dont know
