3.39 Write the complete Lewis structure for each of the following compounds: (a) ammonium chloride; (b) potassium phosphide; (c) sodium hypochlorite.

For part b, how do we format the lewis structure? Can we write 3K+ or do we have to write 3 separate K+'s?

For the lewis structure, you would need to draw three individual potassium atoms.

Potassium and Phosphorus have a high difference in electronegativity so they have more ionic so they are not covalently bonded so the Potassium atoms are separate.
