Draw a Lewis dot structure for each of the following elements. Identify what net charge each element would adopt to achieve the valence electron configuration of a noble gas (achieve a stable octet).
Lewis Dot Structure:
The Lewis dot structure of an element is drawn considering only the valence electron(s) of the element. In this type of structure, an electron is represented by a dot. The alkali metals release an election and adopt the noble gas configuration.
Answer and Explanation: 1
The Lewis dot structures are drawn below.
Net charge each element would adopt to achieve the valence electron configuration of a noble gas...
