This video is about Lewis Structures, and discusses in details the method of drawing lewis structures for molecules, ions and ionic compounds.
In this video I discuss the following examples of drawing Lewis structure:
- Water: H2O.
- Carbon dioxide: CO2.
- Triiodide: I3-.
- Sulfate: SO42-
- And several other examples.
Moreover, the exceptions to the octet rule were discussed in addition to determining the major contributor to the Lewis structure using the formal charges.
Students studying Chemistry at different levels could highly benefit from this video.
