Visual of Resonance

Postby Eljie_2F » Fri Oct 14, 2016 4:34 pm

I am having trouble imagining what a molecule with resonance really looks like. Has anyone found any images?

Sadly I couldn't find any pictures but the way my AP Chem teacher showed it to us is the following. Imagine a atom bonded with three atoms around it. All the bonds are single bonds but next to each bond is a dashed line representing the extra pull due to the double bond. The double bond is not drawn in though.

Hey! I don't know if this is exactly what you're asking for but I found this diagram really helpful! ... ge1036.jpg
