Draw a second resonance structure for the following carbocation. Then draw the hybrid.
The resonance hybrid is the combined form of all the resonance structures of a species. A resonance hybrid consists of partial bonds and partial charges. A resonance hybrid actually shows the distribution of charges and bonds around the molecular structure.
Answer and Explanation: 1
In the given carbocation, there exists a conjugated double bond at the adjacent position of the positive charge-bearing carbon atom. Hence, the double...
