A lewis dot diagram a one of the most convenient ways to picture sharing of electrons between atoms in covalent or polar covalent bonds.
The dot structure represents an atom's valence electrons (electrons on the outer shell of the nucleus) by dots and indicates by the placement of the dots how the valence electrons ...
This solution explains in 253 words what a Lewis dot structure is and how to create it, referencing electron bonds between atoms, valence electrons, and the Octet rule.
