Lewis Dot Structure of Simple Molecules

Author: Christine Glieden
Description:

To learn how to draw a Lewis dot structure for simple molecules.

Bonding pair: "Two electrons forming a covalent bond between two atoms, usually with one electron of the pair coming from one atom and the other electron coming from the other atom." page G-3

Lone pair: "Two valence electrons that usually are not used for sharing with another atom in a covalent bond." page G-9
