Problem: Draw the main Lewis structure of NOF. Draw nonbonding electrons using the dot notation, and bonding electrons as a bond.Lewis dot structures show all the valence electrons in an atom or molecule. Lewis dot structures are most often used to show covalent bonding. For example, the dot structure of NF3 is shown in the figure, which shows a total of 26 valence electrons (6 bonding and 20 nonbonding).
