Problem: Draw the Lewis structure(s) for the molecule with the chemical formula C2H3N, where the N is connected to only one other atom. How many double bonds are there in the correct Lewis structure?

FREE Expert Solution

We are asked to draw the Lewis structure(s) for the molecule with the chemical formula C2H3N.


Step 1. Count valence electrons

C → group 4A → 2 x 4 ve = 8 ve

H → group 1A → 3 x 1 ve = 3 ve

N → group 5A → 1 x 5 ve = 3 ve


Step 2. Draw Lewis structure
