Concept:

Problem: Part A. Draw the Lewis structure of H2O. Include any nonbonding electron pairs.Draw the molecule by placing atoms on the grid and connecting them with bonds. Include all lone pairs of electrons.To determine the electron geometry of a compound, one must first draw the Lewis structure. The electron geometry is the three-dimensional arrangement of electron groups around a central atom. Keep in mind, however, that Lewis structures do not necessarily show the correct three-dimensional geometry of that molecule.
