🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Zwier & Roadruck's class at PURDUE.

Solution: The formaldehyde molecule, which has the formula CH 2O, has two possible structures for which we can write a correct Lewis dot structures.  Using formal charge, determine the correct structure.  Be sure to show how you compute the formal charge on each atom.
