TermDefinition
Steps for Writing Lewis Structures Find the total valence electrons Put the least electroneg atom in the center. Put two electrons between atoms to form a chemical bond. make octs If central atom does not have an octet, move electrons from outer atoms to form double or triple bonds.
advanced steps If you have extra electrons after the above steps add them to the central atom. Note: elements in the Period Three (usually S, P, or Xe) can have more than eight valence electrons. use formal charges
Notable Exceptions to the Octet Rule H only needs 2 valence electrons. Be and B don’t need 8 valence electrons. S and P sometimes have more than 8 val. Electrons. Elements in Period Three, Four, etc (on the periodic table) can hold more than 8 valence electrons.
formal charge equation formal charge=valence electrons-nobonding valence-(bonding electrons/2) use for S an P

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.

To see how well you know the information, try the Quiz or Test activity.
