illustrating electron movement with arrows

Postby reginacabanban1I » Sat Feb 20, 2016 10:01 pm

The course reader states that the arrows the show e- source and the destination of the e-
Does this mean the base of the arrow always starts from a line representing a bond and ends at an atom?

Yes, the base of an arrow should start at the bond rather than at an element such as carbon. It should end pointing to the element that is receiving the electron.
