How can we count the number of bonding sites on a molecule. (do we include lone pairs?)

when there's a pair of unshared electrons on F-O-N or when there's a hydrogen that is bonded to F-O-N

If you mean hydrogen bonding, then it's where nitrogen, oxygen, and fluorine atoms with a lone pair are bonding sites (each lone pair is one bonding site). Hydrogen atoms attached to a nitrogen, oxygen, or fluorine are also bonding sites.

I hope this helps!

Normally you would just count the number of bonds (double and triple count as one) in the molecule.

Return to “Interionic and Intermolecular Forces (Ion-Ion, Ion-Dipole, Dipole-Dipole, Dipole-Induced Dipole, Dispersion/Induced Dipole-Induced Dipole/London Forces, Hydrogen Bonding)”
