Chapter 3, Question 61

Postby Alma Cruz 1A » Sat Jul 22, 2017 7:45 pm

When drawing lewis structures and finding their formal charge, if we end up with a positive or negative formal charge, do we add the charge next to the element or do we add it around the brackets
Ex) [molecular compound] ^2+

Write the formal charge next to the element. If the compound has an overall charge, then write that around the brackets.
