Resonance hybrids of covalent and ionic structures

Postby Melissa Papuc 2J » Sun Oct 18, 2015 9:30 pm

How can you determine whether a structure with a covalent bond or a structure with an ionic bond makes a larger contribution to the resonance hybrid structure of the atom?

I think based on what Dr. Lavelle explained in the lecture, it's based on whether there are double or triple bonds. I think the part of the structure with the double or triple bond contributes more to the resonance.
