For a molecule of XeCl3H a) Draw the Lewis structure then predict the shape of the compound and draw the shape of the compound b) Determine if the molecule is polar or nonpolar and explain how you made that determination. If there is a dipole moment, draw it.
Transcribed: c) For the polyatomic anion NO3, draw the lewis structure and any resonance structures and assign formal charges to each atom. Show your calculations. FC=V-B-N

Answer

(A) Lewis structure of XeCl3H

 Valence electrons on xenon = 8

Valence electrons on each Chlorine = 7

Valence electron on hydrogen = 1

Calculation of formal charge

Farmal charge on oxygen (a) = 6-2-4 =0

Formal charge on oxygen (b) atom = 6-1-6=-1

Formal charge on oxygen (c) atom = 6-1-6= -1

Formal charge on Nitrogen (d) atom = 5-4 =+1
