Problem: Draw the lewis structure for CH(NH2)2+.

FREE Expert Solution

We’re being asked to draw the Lewis structure for CH(NH2)2+. We first need to determine the total number of valence electrons present in the molecule:


            Group             Valence Electrons

C         4A                   1 × 4 e4 e

H         1A                   5 × 1 e5 e

N         6A                   2 × 5 e10 e

+1 charge                         –1 e

              Total:  18 valence e
