Question:

Draw the resonance contributors for the following molecule .

Resonance Structures :

These are lewis structures of a molecule or an io which describes the movement or delocalization of the electrons.

This concept was generated when scientists realize that one single structure of many molecules is not enough to describe its properties.

The real structure of a molecule is the resonance hybrid of the possible resonating structures.
