Formal Charges on Midterm

Postby Julia Lindner 1I » Sat Nov 03, 2018 10:00 pm

On the midterm, when we draw Lewis Structures will we have to write the formal charges next to each element in the structure? Also, is it okay to calculate the charges in our head instead of writing them out?

At a workshop I went to, a UA said it would be a good idea to write them out but it wasn't completely necessary unless stated explicitly in the problem

I don't think you necessarily have to write out your calculations for the formal charge but it's probably safer to write the number next to each element.
