when figuring molecular shape, I've noticed that the textbook has Lewis structures that do not have the lowest formal charge. I know it does not matter as much because we can still figure out the shape. For the final do we draw the Lewis structure according to formal charge before figuring VSEPR shape?
In determining formal charge, I know it is #valence electrons - #bonds and #lp. But, if there is one set of lone pairs (2 electrons, one Lone pair) would I just subtract 1 ? Or because there are two electrons, would I subtract two?
