How many valence electrons are in carbon tetrachloride?

  • Chemistry -

    I'm not sure what you question is. If we define valence electrons as the outermost electrons in atoms, then there will be 4 for C and 7 each for Cl or 28 + 4 = 32 but not all of those are involved in bond formation.

    Well it says to find valence electrons to make the Lewis dot diagram, I'm not sure if that helps.

  • Chemistry -

    OK. There are 32 electrons available to make the Lewis structure for CCl4. Here is a site but do it yourself before you look at the site. The site is just to check yourself.
