We are asked to determine the Electron dot structure (Lewis structure) of the Chlorine Cl atom.
To determine the structure, we need to do the following steps:
Step 1: Determine the position of Chlorine in the Periodic table.
Step 2: Calculate the total number of valence electrons present.
Write electron dot structure for the following element:
