Resonance Structure Midterm

Postby ckilkeary 2G » Tue Nov 05, 2019 9:06 pm

When we're asked to draw a Lewis Structure on the Midterm tomorrow, do we have to draw all of the resonance structures for full credit or can we just draw the one?

ie for CO32- should we draw three Lewis structures with each having a double bond on a different O attached to the C or should we just have the one Lewis Structure.

Only do that if they ask you to, they will specifically ask you to draw the resonance structures

If asked to draw resonance structures, I am sure they are asking for all of them, so I would write them all just in case. If you don't and they explicitly asked for all resonance structures you could possibly lose partial credit.

It should state specifically all or one

You should draw the resonance structures if specifically asked to do so in the question. If not, you should be ok just drawing one.

You can draw one structure unless the questions states to draw the resonance structures.
