Draw all resonance structures for the nitryl fluoride molecule, {eq}NO_2F {/eq}.

Question:

Draw all resonance structures for the nitryl fluoride molecule, {eq}NO_2F {/eq}.

Resonance Structures:

Resonance structures are more than one Lewis structure of a molecule that describes the electronic arrangement of a molecule. It shows this without breaking or forming single bonds so that the connectivity of atoms remains the same.
