RULES FOR DRAWING LEWIS STRUCTURES : All Species with Covalent Bonds

Rule of Eight or Octet Rule

All atoms need 8 valence electron around it after finishing bonding (correct Lewis Dot Structure).
Exception:
a. H - 2 valence e-
b. Be - 4 valence e-
c. B - 6 valence e-
d. 3rd row or greater elements (called Exceeding Octet Rule)









DRAW LEWIS DOT STRUCTURES FOR EACH OF THE FOLLOWING COMPOUNDS.
1. H2


2. HCl


3. H2O


4. NCl3


5. Be F2



6. SF2



7. CF4



8. CO2



9. SO42-



10. Cl O31-
