Which structure correctly represents hydroxylamine, NH3O. Also, check those statements which are correct for the completed Lewis structure.

Select one or more:
 Correct
 Correct
 Correct

 

Explanation

The second structure is correct because the N has a charge of zero. While the first structure has a charge of  +1 for N.

Which Lewis structure, satisfying the octet rule, correctly represents phosphorous acid, H3PO3. Also, check those statements which are correct for the completed Lewis structure satisfying the octet rule.

Oxygen Bonding

Select one or more:
 Correct
 Correct
 Correct

 

Explanation

Structure II is correct because neutral charge of 0 matches the formula's charge.


 H3PO3 = 3 +  5 +( 6*3 ) = 26 valence electrons


P : has one lone pairs

Question 20

Which of the following molecules are nonpolar? 

(You need to draw the Lewis structure for each molecule unless you already know by analogy. For example, NH3 and PH3 have the same shape because P is below N on the periodic table, so they have the same number of valence electrons.) 

Select one or more:
 Correct
 Correct
 Correct

 

Explanation

 = tetrahedral = nonpolar (symmetrical )


SF6 = octahedral = nonpolar (symmetrical)
