Ions for the Midterm

Postby Amir Bayat » Sun Nov 03, 2019 9:49 am

Do we need to know ions like those in question 2C for the midterm on Wednesday?

The question 2C states:

Draw the Lewis structure, including typical contributions to the resonance structure (where appropriate, allow for the possibility of octet expansion, including double bonds in different positions), for (a) periodate ion; (b) hydrogen phosphate ion; (c) chloric acid; (d) arsenate ion.

For example Periodate Ion or Arsenate Ion?

I believe that for those they might give us the formula since those aren't the ions that we see everyday however I am not completely sure.

Dr. Lavelle said in class he would give us the formulas for any compounds we have not been exposed to a lot (like he might not give us the formula for water but he'd give us those)

I believe we don't have to memorize those random ions. Unless we see them a lot, I doubt we'd have to memorize them
