Drawing Structures

How do we know that there are several ways to draw a chemical structure?

You can draw a molecule in different ways/ a molecule has resonance when you can draw a structure with multiple bonds in different positions (ie move one bond to another to create a double bond)

You know you can draw a chemical structure in several ways you can see multiple bonds in different locations, this is known as resonance. Resonance structures are indicator for more stable structures.

If a structure can have double bonds in varying locations, then it is said to have resonance and can therefore have multiple drawings representing the location of different double bonds.
