Problem: Ammonium chloride, NH4Cl, is a very soluble salt in water.Is there an N-Cl bond in solid ammonium chloride?

FREE Expert Solution

We're being asked to determine if an N-Cl bond is present in NH4Cl

NH4Cl is an ionic compound composed of NH4+ (ammonium ion) and Cl(chloride ion)

Recall that for Lewis structures of ionic compounds, we have to draw the structure of each ion separately enclosed with brackets.

In this case, we can draw the Lewis structure of NH4Cl following the steps:
