Problem 5 a) on chapter 2C 7th edition: the problem calls for you to draw the lewis structure for ClO. The solutions manual shows it drawn with a single bond, but I was wondering why it would be incorrect to draw the structure with a double bond instead (since the formal charge would then be 0 for both Cl and O, whereas with a single bond the formal charges are +1 for Cl and -1 for O). Thank You!
