What is the lewis structure for HBrO4.
Also show the VSEPR structure

The following, if it turns out ok, is the BrO4- ion.

&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp..
>&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp:O:
>&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp..
&nbsp&nbsp..&nbp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp..
:O:Br:O:
>&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp..
>&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp:O:
>&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp..





Forget it. It's really hard to do on these boards. Place Br on your paper, to the left, top, right, and bottom, draw and O atom. Then place eight electrons around each O atom. That will be 32 electrons when you finish and you will have 8 electrons around each O atoms and 8 electrons around Br.

    Hi, I am having troubles with Lewis structure and VSEPR theory of (ClPO3)2-.Do I use 2 bonds for each O and one for Cl, so its tetrahedral, or do I use 2 bonds for one O and one bond for the other two Os(making dative bonds)+ one
