HW: 2.7

Postby ahuang » Sat Nov 02, 2019 1:03 pm

For question 2.7, when I drew the lewis structure for the N5+ cation, it had alternating single and double bonds, where each of the N atoms had 5 electrons except one (one 1+ formal charge). However, when I looked up the structure, it actually had 2 triple bonds and 2 single bonds with two 1+ formal charges and one 1- formal charge. Why is the other way of drawing it not correct?

Whats the problem letter? Is it for example, 2A.7 or 2C. 7?
