Question:

Draw the molecule by placing atoms on the grid and connecting them with bonds. Include all lone pairs of electrons. Show the formal charges of all atoms in the correct structure. ClO{eq}_3^-{/eq} ClO{eq}_4^-{/eq} NO{eq}_3^-{/eq} NH{eq}_4^+{/eq}

Molecular Structure:

The molecular structure of a compound depicts the atoms of a molecule with their charges and their lone pairs of electrons. This is also called as Lewis dot structure where the molecules are drawn showing their bonds represented by lines (or dots) and the non-bonding pairs of electrons represented by dots not between atoms.
