Question:

Draw a Lewis structure for each of the following molecules. Draw the molecule by placing atoms on the grid and connecting them with bonds. Include all lone pairs of electrons.

{eq}PH_3, \ SCl_2, \ F_2, \ HI, \ C_2H_2, \ C_2H_4, \ N_2H_2, \ N_2H_4. {/eq}

Lewis Structures:

The valence electrons of atoms can be shared to form covalent bonds in a molecule. A Lewis structure is a representation of how the valence electrons of atoms are shared in a molecule.
