Lewis Acids and Bases

Postby Anna Nordstrom 1A » Sun Nov 01, 2015 3:27 pm

The 2014 midterm question 2B asks whether the Al atom in aluminum chloride is a Lewis Acid or base. Are we responsible for Lewis Acids and Bases on our midterm? Also, on the same question, it asks to draw the Lewis structure for aluminum chloride without giving the formula AlCl3. Should we memorize the naming schema for common elements or will we be given the formulas?

Thank you!

We are required to know about Lewis Acids and Bases for the midterm as it was covered in lecture. I asked my TA and the equations should given to us, at least that was the case for the quizzes up to now, so I expect the midterm to be the same.
