What is the Lewis structure of ClF4 plus?
Total electrons --> 7+42-1=48 Cl as a central atom One lone pair on Cl (on the side) 4 F's up and down and the other two on the opposite side of lone pair. F I :- Cl - F - F I F This is the best I can do with plain text.

.. .. N≡O .. or Nitrogen with two electrons with a triple bond connecting it to an oxygen atom with 4 electrons
The difference between the Lewis dot structure and the structural formula is that the formula only shows the bonds that have formed whereas the dot structure shows all the… valence electrons, including lone pairs, in that molecule.
How many valence electrons should be drawn in the Lewis structure for the polyatomic cation NH4 plus?
Ammonium (NH4+) is made up of a Nitrogen atom (N) with five valence electrons and four Hydrogen atoms (H) with one valence electron per Hydrogen atom. All four H atoms bond …covalently with the N atom. There will be an extra electron that is not needed, as all of the valence shells have been filled - so, the NH4+ molecule will lose that electron to another molecule and gain a positive charge (with a total of nine protons and eight electrons, there is a +1 charge). You can illustrate this bond like the one below: H H \\ / N / \\ H H
C = 4 valence electrons 2 x S = 2X6 = 12 valence electrons that's 16 valence electrons in all C is least abundant and most electronegative so it goes in the middle of the str…ucture S = C = S (in the structure i used the "=" as a double liaison) there are two links from C so 16 e- -4x2 e- = 16 - 8 = 8 residual electrons u start filling the electrons around the S in pairs and to respect the octet rule of 8 valence electrons to make it complete and stable. the final structure is ** ** S = C = S ** ** the " * " are residual electrons
The Kekule structue shows every atom and every bond. The Lewis structure shows every atom, bond and all nonbonding valence electrons
S is the central atom. You add the 6 chlorines to bond with sulfur with a single bond. THis is allowed because sulfur can be an expanded octet because it is in the third row.
Just look up how many number of valence electrons your atom has, and then do your atoms atomic symbol and put the number of dots around it. For example, this is the Lewis Dot …Diagram for Silver: Ag. No. BF is a molecule, not a single atom. B has three valence electrons, and F has seven, bringing the total to 10. The only way to do this is to connect B to F with a triple bond. Also, both the B and the F will have one lone pair of electrons. I don't know if you need to know the charge, but B has a 2- charge, and F has a 2+ charge. The end result would look something like this.. :B2- =- F:2+ (The "=-" was the only way I could think to represent the triple bond. Normally it would just be three lines on top of each other.)
The Lewis structure for NH3Cl plus is very easy to draw. The N atom is placed in the center, singly bonded to three H atoms and one Cl atom. A +1 formal charge is indicate…d at the N atom.
The central atom is Sulfur (S). It is singly bonded to each of the six Chlorines (Cl). Each of the six Chlorines has three lone pairs. Sulfur can have six bonds because it is …in the third row and can therefore have an expanded octet.
Sulfur dioxide has three resonance structures. A singly bonded oxygen would have 3 unshared electron pairs while a doubly bonded oxygen would have 2. The sulfur has one pa…ir.
this is one of those molecules that doesnt obey the octet rule. a double bond between N and O (N=O), with 3 unbonded electrons on N, and 4 unbonded electrons on O. the N…O2 is similar, although it would be O-N=O, with 4 unbonded electrons on the double bonded Oxygen, 6 unbonded on the single bond Oxygen and 1 electron on N.
Lewis structure is a way to show the covalent bonds in chemical compounds.
14 ve- so 7 bonds/lone pairs. Cl will have three sets of lone pairs on it and F will have three sets of lone pairs on it. There is a single bond between Cl and F 1 bond, 6 lon…e pairs = total number of ve-
The amount of dots in total in the Lewis Dot Diagram of AsF4+ (Arsenic tetrafloride) is twenty six. Each "F" (fluorine atom) has six dots in total, two on three "sides". The …As (arsenic atom) in the middle of the structure has two dots adjacent to it. Each dot resembles the amount of electrons available in the very outer shell of the atoms structure, known as valance electrons.
