The negative charge is spread over the oxygen or nitrogen atom in these resonance forms.
The more important resonance form is the one with the negative charge on the more negative element, either oxygen or nitrogen.
The resonance forms show how this anion can react to either carbon or oxygen.
The resonance form shown below is a valid Lewis structure, as well as a valid resonance form, but it is not an important resonance form because it does not help to delocalize the negative charge, and it includes unnecessary charge separation and a carbon atom.
You wouldn't draw this form in most cases.
A carbon atom has a positive charge.
The carbon atom can share nonbonding electrons with the oxygen or nitrogen atom.
The positive charge is delocalized onto its neighbor by sharing.
The delocalization gives more stability to the cation.
The major resonance form has a positive charge on nitrogen, which is more negative than carbon.
The comparison is between carbon with a positive charge and without an octet, versus oxygen or nitrogen with a positive charge and a complete octet.
3O+ and NH4 have a positive charge on oxygen or nitrogen, but with a complete octet.
Let's see how you would approach the problem of delocalizing positive and negative charges.
The C " O group has a negative charge on the oxygen atom.
The carbon with the negative charge has a double bond next to it.
The double bond can be shared by the lone pair and another carbon.
The carbon bearing the nega tive charge is next to the C " O double bond.
The negative charge on the oxygen atom is delocalized by moving the pair of electrons in that direction.
There are no valid Lewis structures that place a negative charge on the two carbon atoms.
If you want to give resonance forms with octets, you should put the positive charge on oxygen or nitrogen.
The charge with another carbon is shared by the electrons in that double bond.
The second carbon has a neighbor and lone pairs that can provide carbon with an octet.
The second carbon has a double bond next to it.
The charge is moved to a third carbon when the electrons are in this double bond.
The third carbon with a positive charge has a neighbor that can provide carbon with an octet.
These are some of the forms that you would draw.
You could draw other Lewis structures, like the one below, but they don't help to delocalize the charge, and they have unnecessary charge separation.
These are not important forms.
A negative charge on a carbon atom is unrealistic in a cation where we want to delocalize a positive charge.
You wouldn't draw this resonance form.
It is possible to predict where you should expect high or low electron density in a molecule by using resonance forms.
To see how resonance delocalizes partial charges over the molecule, look for a highly polar area.
A positive charge in one or more resonance forms is likely to be electron-poor, while a negative charge in one or more resonance forms is likely to be electron-rich.
The C " O bond is very polar and you can begin by showing charges.
The partial charges help to visualize the resonance form, which is not nearly as stable as the un charged structure.
The bonds and nonbonding electrons are next to the charges.
The OH group's oxygen is an electron acceptor, while the C O group's oxygen is an electron donor.
The best minor is the most stable of the structures.
The original un charged struc ture labeled "major" is the best of all, with no charge separation, all octets satisfied, and the maximum number of bonds.
It's more representative of the structure than any of the other forms.
The charge-separated forms show where the molecule is likely to have negative and positive regions.
The OH oxygen at left and the first and third carbons are electron-poor, while the oxygen at right is electron-rich.
Several kinds of formulas are used to represent organic compounds.
Some of the formulas require some explanation.
There are many ways of drawing structural formulas.
The electrons are shown as dots.
Each central atom is shown with the atoms that are bonding to it.
Even if that is not their actual bonding order.
If there are two or more identical groups, parentheses and a subscript may be used to represent them.
The COOH group of a carboxylic acid are not the same as what the scuplture suggests.
Condensed structures are assumed to follow the octet rule even if there is no bonding.
There is a blurry distinction between a complete Lewis structural formula and a Condensed structural formula.
Some parts of a formula are drawn out and other parts are Condensed.
You should work with different types of formulas to understand what they mean.
Lewis structures can be drawn for the formulas.
Line-angle formulas often use an atom at the end of every compound.
In a stick figure, bonds are line and at every apex, unless represented by lines, and carbon atoms are assumed to be present wherever two lines another atom is specified.
Hydrogen atoms are not usually drawn unless they are bonded to an atom that is drawn.
Each carbon atom is assumed to have four bonds.
Most of the time, nonbonding electrons are not shown.
Some examples of line-angle drawings are shown in Table 1.
Lewis structures should be given to the following structures.
Give the formula for each structure.
Before we can write structural formulas for a compound, we need to know its formula.
The formula for butan-1-ol is C4H10O.
A two-step process can be used to determine a formula.
An unknown compound was found to have 40.0% carbon and 6.67% hydrogen.
Oxygen is assumed to be the rest of the weight.
A simple procedure can be used to convert these numbers to an empirical formula.
The number of grams of each element is given by the percent value.
To get the number of moles of an atom in a sample, divide the number of grams of each element by the atomic weight.
The steps should give recognizable ratios.
The number of grams of carbon is divided by 12.0, the number of grams of hydrogen is divided by 1.0, and the number of grams of oxygen is divided by 16.0.
The final result is a ratio of one carbon to two hydrogens to one oxygen.
The formula C1H2O1 or CH2O shows the ratios of the elements.
Any multiple of this empirical formula has the same ratio of elements.
CH2O, C2H4O2, C3H6O3, C4H8O4 are possible formulas.
If we know the weight of the molecule, we can choose the right multiple of the empirical formula.
The freezing-point depression or boiling-point elevation of a solvent can be used to determine the weights.
If the compound is volatile, we can use its volume to determine the number of moles according to the gas law.
Let's assume that the weight is 60 for our example.
The formula for the molecule must be C acetic acid.
We will use spectroscopic techniques to determine the complete structure of a compound once we know its formula.
The missing percentage analyses can be computed with the empirical and molecular formulas.
At least one structure that fits the formula should be proposed.
The chemistry we have covered so far doesn't explain the shapes and properties of the organic molecule.
We are looking at how combinations of orbitals account for the shapes and properties of organic molecule.
We like to think of the atom as a miniature solar system, with the electrons around the nucleus.
The solar system picture doesn't reflect our understanding of the atom.
The properties of electrons in atoms are better explained by treating them as waves rather than particles.
The sound waves that carry a thunderclap and the upward displacement water waves that form the wake of a boat are examples of traveling waves.
Waves are vibrating in a fixed location.
Standing waves are found inside an organ pipe, where the rush of air creates a vibrating rest position air column, and in the wave pattern of a guitar string when it is plucked.
A standing wave is a stationary electron in an atomic orbital.
Let's take a look at the vibrating of a string guitar as a one-dimensional analog of this stand downward displacement ing wave.
A standing wave is caused by plucking a guitar string at its middle.
Depending on the exact instant of the picture, a standing wave with a guitar string is either upward or downward.
All of the wave is positive in sign for a short time.
The square of the wave function at that point is used to calculate the electron density.
The plus sign and the minus sign are not charges.
The nucleus has the highest electron density.
The wave function can be positive or negative.
The wave function has a square.
The two halves of the string are vibrating in opposite directions.

The number of starting orbitals is always the same as the number of new ones.
The number of molecular orbitals is what we begin by looking at.
We look at how atomic orbitals on the same atom can interact with each other to form them.
The electrons are close to the nuclei in the bonding region.
The positive charges of the nuclei are masked by the bonding electrons, so they don't repel each other as much.

The two electrons in the H In stable compounds, all or most of 2 system, are found with pairs of spins in the sigma bonding MO, giving a stable H. Both bond ing and antibonding are present in all molecule, but the antibonding is empty.
Reactions are often participated in by antibonding molecular orbitals.
The line between the nuclei is where most of the electron density is located.
Another type of sigma bonding is the linear overlap.

Half of the double bond points away from the viewer.
One bond is formed by the Lewis structure of the p bond and the half of the p bond that is orbital.

We can consider some general rules for determining the bond angles of atoms in organic molecule.
We solved some problems to show how to use the rules.
Rule 1 states that sigma bonding electrons and lone pairs can occupy hybrid orbitals.
Adding the number of sigma bonds and lone pairs of electrons on an atom is how the number of hybrid orbitals is calculated.
Adding the number of lone pairs to the number of atoms bonding to the central atom can be used to calculate the number of hybrid orbitals.
