🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Sendler's class at ASU.

Solution: Draw the Lewis dot structure for AlCl 3.

Problem

Draw the Lewis dot structure for AlCl 3.

Solution

We’re being asked to draw a Lewis structure for AlCl3. We first need to determine the total number of valence electrons present in the molecule:


            Group            Valence Electrons

Al        3A                   1 × 3 e3 e

Cl        7A                   3 × 7 e21 e

Total:  24 valence e
