Lewis Structure

Postby Harjot Manku 1C » Wed Jul 19, 2017 6:31 pm

Is there a guideline you have to follow when doing Lewis Structures with multiple elements? For example, H2C(NH2)COOH.

for that example because NH2 is in parenthesis next to the C in H2C you can tell that they are saying that the nitrogen will be connected to this carbon.

The order of the atoms in the molecular compound can also aid in the formation of the Lewis structure. For example, the COOH at the end of the formula illustrates that there will be a carboxylic acid attached to the nitrogen.
