do we have to know all of the different types of lewis structures for one molecule or is there a specific lewis structure that we need to know for each molecule?

I am not sure. However, this would be a great question to ask in Dr. Lavelle's office hours.

I think a problem on a test would be to draw out the lewis structure, but it would only ask for one way. But all variations would get credit. I would ask Dr. Lavelle to be sure.

I think there are some calculations you can do to tell which arrangement is the most stable. So, I think he might have us draw the most stable configuration.

I believe that if the question asks for a structure we should draw the most stable one which can be found by calculating the formal charges. Furthermore, I believe if the question is asking for a resonance then it will be indicated.

I'm also not sure, but I am planning to go to his office hours so if I find out I will post it here!

Yes, after going to some of the review sessions I believe we are just supposed to draw the most stable option in this case!

on the tests would we have to draw the multiple resonance structure or is one okay?
