In this question, it asks to draw the lewis structure for aluminum chloride and name its shape. Then, it asks if the aluminum atom is a lewis acid or lewis base. Why is the aluminum atom a lewis acid? Is it because aluminum is a cation? Therefore, the aluminum atom is positive in charge and is attracted to electrons. This causes the atom to accept electrons, which makes it a lewis acid. Is my reasoning correct?
