Lewis dot structures

  1. 1. Lewis Dot Structures<br />
  2. 2. Steps<br />Find the element’s # of Valence Electrons by looking at its Group #.<br />Write the element’s chemical symbol.<br />Starting at the top and moving clockwise, add valence electrons until all sides are filled.<br />If each side is filled, begin pairing the electrons.<br />
  3. 3. Example – Step 1<br />Find the element’s # of Valence Electrons by looking at its Group #.<br /> Sodium Oxygen<br /> Group 1 Group 16 (6A)<br /> 1 Valence Electron 6 Valence Electrons<br />
  4. 4. Example – Step 2<br />Write the element’s chemical symbol.<br /> Sodium Oxygen<br /> Na O<br />
  5. 5. Example – Step 3-4<br />3) Starting at the top and moving clockwise, add valence electrons until all sides are filled.<br />4) If each side is filled, begin pairing the electrons.<br /> Na O<br />Sodium has 1 valence electron.<br />Movingclockwise, add valence electrons.<br />Since all sides are filled, being again at the top and work clockwise.<br />Oxygen has 6 Valence Electrons.<br />
