B. Ionic bond
C. Single bond
D. Double bond
E. Triple bond
Are the answers A and B?

  1. I know from general knowledge that oxygen has a double covalent bond, so i think A & D are 2 of the answers. Of course, I only know so much, so I could be completely wrong...

  2. I suspect the correct answers are as Brainiac suggested and I assume this is a lower level course.
    I don't want to confuse you and I can't draw the structure on this forum; however, I would like to point out a few things.
    1. The Lewis dot structure you drew satisfies the octet rule and for many years most thought that was correct. And we're calling it correct for this question. However, in real life, it isn't true. How do we know that? Because O2 is paramagnetic which means it has unpaired electrons whereas the structure you drew has everything paired up.
    2. Bond measurements have shown that the bond between O atoms is stronger than a double bond but weaker than a triple bond.
    3.Years ago Linus Pauling suggested the three electron bond and that was interesting. Current molecular orbital theory explains the bonding in O2 and I think much of the debate has ended (at least it has quieted some).
    4. The latest I have read (link below) suggests that the bond is a single 2-electron bond and two-three electron bonds.

  7. obviously @JJ is cheating on this website because he only would've found this by looking up the question, although I do agree that you should find the answers on your own and if you look it up do research so you understand the material, but I also understand that cheating or not cheating is everyones own choice.

    honestly, there is so much controversy on this website it's insane.
    people come for study help, then that turns into just straight up wanting answers.
    i cant make your decisions for you, but hear me out:
    if you're gonna cheat, don't just skate by. learn it. pay attention in class, study; and if you still need Jiskha, use it.
    but at least learn about what you're cheating on, cus this wont be available for you when you need it most.

  14. Jihska is an amazing website to help clueless students like me i try to avoid straight up answers and find people who explain it and show the work people who use straight up answers read your lessons and don't just look for answer lil 1a 2b 3c please actually try if you don't your setting yourself up for failure later in life please don't get yourself screwed later on life you need to actually learn this stuff.
