The total number of valence electrons present:
Group Valence Electrons
F 7A 2 × 7 e– = 14 e–
Total: 14 valence e–
The Lewis structure is:
Valence electron configuration of F: 2s22p5.
Use valence bond theory to explain the bonding in F 2, HF, and ClBr. Sketch the overlap of the atomic orbitals involved in the bonds.
