Draw a second resonance structure for the given ion. Then, draw the resonance hybrid.

Question:

Draw a second resonance structure for the given ion. Then, draw the resonance hybrid.

Resonance Hybrid:

A resonance hybrid is a compound, molecule, or ion with resonance and a structure written as the average of two or more structural formulas separated by a double-headed arrow. A resonance hybrid is a real, approximate intermediate of the resonating structures that contribute to it. The least stable resonating structure makes the most contribution to resonance hybrid.
