Resonance Lewis Structures

Postby Meigan Wu 2E » Wed Nov 07, 2018 8:58 pm

Are resonance structures only in regards to bond location? Do they apply to the positions of lone pair electrons too?

As far as I know resonance is only in reference to delocalized bonding pairs, not lone pairs but we have yet to get to hybridization which might provide more insight on this

Resonance structures are a blending of structures with the same arrangement of atoms but different arrangement of electrons. We have only discussed it really in relation to bonding pairs.

So far, we've primarily just looked at resonance structures in the context of delocalized bonding pairs :)
