Problem

When a given molecule or ion is shown via resonance structures, the numerous structures

1. show the various stable isomers (or kinds) of a compound.

2. show the set of bonding extremes of which the average will better represent the actual bonding.

3. show how an isotope of one or more of the atoms is distributed within a molecule.

4. show the various possible geometries that a molecule or ion can assume.

5. show the nature of the various vibrations possible based on the nature of the kinds of atoms and bonds.
