    Solution Preview

    A Lewis dot diagram is one of the most convenient ways to picture electron sharing 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 are distributed in a molecule. ...

    Solution Summary

    An explanation of the Lewis dot structure is provided. The atom's valence structures are given.
