    Perform steps a-d for the molecules described below in (e):

    a.) Draw the Lewis structure.
    b.) Count and give the number of regions of high electron density that exist around the central atom.
    c.) Identify the most stable arrangement of the regions of high electron density.
    d.) Diagram and name the type of structure that the molecules has based on positions of the atoms.
    e.) CH3- ; SO3; SF6 ; ClF3; SF4; ICl4; XeF4;I3-; and NO2-

    Predict the polar or non-polar characteristics of the molecules listed in 1-e.

    Solution Summary

    Lewis structure is drawn on the basis of electrons present on the outer most orbit. It can aslo be used to know the polar / non-polar character of molecule
