Chemistry Lewis Dot Structure Solution: Draw the Lewis structure of PH 3.

🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Henricks' class at KSU.

Solution: Draw the Lewis structure of PH 3.

Problem

Draw the Lewis structure of PH 3.

Solution

The questions ask us to draw the Lewis structure so the first thing we need to know is the number of valence electrons. We know that P has 5 e- since it is from group 5a and H will have 1 e- each.

Next, we draw the atoms. P will be the central atom here since H never goes in the center. Then we form bonds with each hydrogen.
