1. In the laboratory, you participated in the bad breath indicator exploration. In this exploration, water molecules (a Lewis base) attacked Carbon dioxide molecules (a Lewis acid) to form carbonic acid molecules containing the atoms of both molecules.
a. draw Lewis structures for the three molecules in this reaction:
H2O + CO2 ---> H2CO3
Water: Carbon Dioxide: Carbonic acid:
b. Show the hybridization of every carbon and oxygen atom in the three Lewis structures above.
c. Identify whether each molecule is polar or non-polar.
