Lewis Dot Structures

CAVA chem 302 & 303 S1U4L13 Lewis Dot Structures

QuestionAnswer
Covalent bonds form between atoms that share pairs of [...] electrons. Covalent bonds form between atoms that share pairs of valence electrons.
Only the [...] electrons are important in bonding. Only the valence electrons are important in bonding.
Gilbert [...] found a simple way to represent chemical bonding. Gilbert Lewis found a simple way to represent chemical bonding.
Lewis used [...] to represent the valence electrons of an atom. Lewis used dots to represent the valence electrons of an atom.
structures drawn using Lewis's method are called [...] structures structures drawn using Lewis's method are called Lewis dot structures. (or just Lewis structures)
A Lewis structure's basic notation includes the [...] of the element, surrounded by dots that represent its valence electrons. A Lewis structure's basic notation includes the symbol of the element, surrounded by dots that represent its valence electrons.
Lewis Dot Structures: When placing dots around a symbol, place one dot on all four sides (top, bottom, right, left) and if you have more left over, start [...]. Lewis Dot Structures: When placing dots around a symbol, place one dot on all four sides (top, bottom, right, left) and if you have more left over, start doubling up.
In the old A/B periodic table, the number of each group tells you the number of [...] for all atoms in that group. In the old A/B periodic table, the number of each group tells you the number of valence electrons for all atoms in that group.
Octet Rule: 8 is the stable number of electrons (but 2 is for small atoms). Octet Rule: 8 is the stable number of electrons (but 2 is for small atoms).
The central atom in a molecule is never [...]. The central atom in a molecule is never Hydrogen.
The central atom in a molecule is usually the one that wants to [...]. The central atom in a molecule is usually the one that wants to form the most bonds.
Lewis Dot Structures: you need to find the total number of [...] in the molecule. Lewis Dot Structures: you need to find the total number of valence electrons in the molecule.
Lewis Dot Structures: At first, connect atoms with a [...] of electrons. Lewis Dot Structures: At first, connect atoms with a pair of electrons.
Lewis Dot Structures: After forming single bonds with pairs of elecrons, distribute the remaining valence electrons; trying to give each atom a full '[...]'. Lewis Dot Structures: After forming single bonds with pairs of elecrons, distribute the remaining valence electrons; trying to give each atom a full 'octet'.
Lewis Dot Structures: If you don't have enough electrons to give each atom a full octet, try creating [...] bonds, or [...] bonds. Lewis Dot Structures: If you don't have enough electrons to give each atom a full octet, try creating double bonds, or triple bonds.
