Do you think we have to write out the entire equation for formal charge on the midterm? Or can we just calculate it in our head, and write the formal charge by the element? I don't want to spend too much time writing out work if it's unnecessary. Thank you!
Not my TA, but Ben said that so long that he can follow the mental process you took to find the charge, you'll get full points. Definitely check in with your TA, though. TBH, my rec is to just do the FC equation. Better safe than sorry.
We should write out the entire equation for formal charge on the midterm instead of just calculating it in our head and writing the formal charge by the element because not only will writing out the entire equation for formal charge make it easier to organize both your thoughts and work, but it will also grant partial credit as well if full credit is not achievable.
