Draw Lewis structures of all of the important resonance states for the following molecules or ions. Be sure to indicate all formal charges and all unshared electron pairs.

H3CCO+

C2H4Br+

C7H7+ (This is a ring with one H on each C)

C6H5NO2 (nitrobenzene)


The first has a double bonded O on one end C.

CH3- CHBr CH2Br- CH

Think on those for the second.

The last two are ring structures. The C7 apparently has several double bonds

The benzene ring with a nitro attached is straightforward.

The question is rather straightforward, I am uncertain what you are having difficulty with.




C2H4Br+

  4. Actually, no.

    The first one was at 9:41 PM, Monday, June 13 of 2005. Weird stuff happened and Ms. Sue answered the question a decade later.
