Homework Problem 2C. 3c

Postby Lilyana Villa 1J » Tue Nov 05, 2019 7:18 pm

3. 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), (c) chloric acid. For this question, I thought I did it right but then when I compared my answer to the solutions, it had a different structure than I did. However, I don't see why my lewis structures are incorrect because they follow all the rules. Can someone explain why mine is wrong?

It looks like your Hydrogen is bonded directly to the Chlorine, but its almost always attached to an Oxygen with acids and (bases too I think)...
