Draw the Lewis structure for the given molecule.

{eq}\text{Br}{{\text{F}}_{\text{5}}} {/eq}


Draw the Lewis structure for the given molecule.

{eq}\text{Br}{{\text{F}}_{\text{5}}} {/eq}

Rules for Lewis Structure:

By using the rules, Lewis's structure is drawn for all the molecules. These rules are,

  • Identify the valence electrons.
  • Initially, the skeleton structure is drawn by using single bonds.
  • The remaining electrons are shown on all the atoms.
