NHF2

Postby Isaac Wen » Mon Nov 09, 2020 8:06 pm

Quick question: does it matter if the H atom is above or below the N atom in the Lewis dot diagram for NHF2?

No, I do not think that it matters where the H is bonded to the N, either above or below is fine.

Like said above it should not matter, also Dr. Lavelle said we will get into shape later so I do not think we need to worry too much about that.

No, for now it does not matter where the hydrogen atom goes as long as you place the nitrogen atom as the center atom because it has the least electronegativity when compared to fluorine. Other than that, the fluorine atoms and hydrogen atoms can be placed around the nitrogen atom. Hope this helps!

It does not matter yet as long as you are able to determine the difference in electronegativity between the two. You also need to be able to determine the polarity of the molecule from the structure.

no! you should be able to determine the difference in electronegativity between them though.

No, we don't need to worry about shape for now.
