Example text

Yet these eight electrons are required to bond five hydrogen atoms to the central nitrogen atom. This would make available less than two electrons for each bond. Even though this is possible, it does not occur under normal circumstances, and so for the present purposes we may assume that this molecule does not exist, because there are too few electrons to hold all the hydrogens in place. Suggest why the species NH5+ does not exist under normal circumstances. By using the principle of the Conservation of Charge, the following equation may be suggested for the formation of the NH5+ ion: If a hydrogen atom is added to the ammonium ion, then an extra electron would be added to the eight that already are accommodated around the nitrogen and this would bring the total to nine, which would violate the Octet rule.

With practice, it will become second nature as to what should be the correct charge on any given species. Let us start with the dihydride of oxygen, namely water. This may be ionised to give a hydroxide anion and a hydrogen cation. Suggest the equation for this reaction, and calculate the charge on each species. The hydroxide anion bears a single negative charge, while the hydrogen cation bears a single positive charge. We have already dealt with how to calculate the charge on the hydrogen cation.

E. a bond or a lone pair. e. an empty orbital, or a positive charge, or an electronegative atom. Half an arrowhead is used to represent one electron, while two electrons moving together are represented by a complete arrowhead. Draw the appropriate arrows to represent the homolytic cleavage of the fluorine molecule. In this case, there are two arrows, each of which has its tail in the middle of the bond that is going to break. One arrow with half an arrowhead is going to one fluorine atom, while the other is going to the other.
