lewis acid or lewis base? then draw the product.

H3C^+ :NH3 ---->



I'm assuming H3C is the acid and :NH3 is the base? As for drawing out the product I don't know what to do.

  • chemistry (please someone help) -

    Are you sure that it is H3C?

  • chemistry (please someone help) -

    H3C+ yes that's what the problem says

  • chemistry (please someone help) -

    Lewis acids are electron pair acceptors (CH3+), and Lewis bases are electron pair donors (NH4).

    thank you. but when the question asks me to draw out the product am I drawing two structures or one?

  • chemistry (please someone help) -

    for instance would i draw something like this? the diagonal lines are suppose to be straight lines.

    H-C-H
    /
    H-N-H
    /
    H

    You forgot an H at the top of the C, but yes.

  • chemistry (please someone help) -

    oh i did. thank you for your responses!

    it's wrong you have to put the lone pairs and the charge somewhere you do something with both.
