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

Solution: In Chapter 15 we shall learn how the nitronium ion, NO  2+, forms when concentrated nitric and sulfuric acids are mixed. (a) Write a Lewis structure for the nitronium ion.  (b) What geometry does VSEPR theory predict for the NO2+ ion? (c) Give a species that has the same number of electrons as NO2+
