FREE Expert Solution

We’re being asked to determine the Lewis structure for C2H6.


We first need to determine the total number of valence electrons present in the molecule:


            Group            Valence Electrons

C         4A                   2 × 4 e8 e

H         1A                   6 × 1 e6 e

              Total: 14 valence e
