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).

• chemistry (please someone help) -

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

• chemistry (please someone help) -

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

• chemistry (please someone help) -

oh i did. thank you for your responses!

• chemistry (please someone help) -

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