Lewis Structures of Acid/Base reactions

Postby Lindsey Chheng 1E » Tue Nov 26, 2019 12:06 am

Is it possible we will be asked to draw out the lewis structures of equations like HCl + H2O --> H3O+ + Cl- on the test?

I think that Dr. Lavelle was mainly doing so in order to help us understand how these reactions work, so I am not entirely sure we'll be tested on it. However, if you were, you would simply have to draw out the Lewis Structures like we've been doing all quarter so it's really nothing too new :) It would be best to ask your TA though!

I don't believe you would have to know how to draw out the lewis structures for acid/base reactions! However, I feel that knowing the lewis structures of acid/base reactions will strengthen and further your understanding of how these reactions work.

I don't believe it will be on the test but Dr.Lavelle draws the structures in class in order to help us better understand the concept. Drawing the Lewis structures can only benefit you but it is not required
