It is OK to use your textbook or lecture notes from class, but if you can answers the questions without it that is OK too.

Do not press the RETURN or ENTER key while you are answering these questions. Your browser will interpret either the same as clicking on the Submit key.

Answer all of the questions below. If you do not know an answer enter CNA. However, it will help me the most if you answer each question with your best intuition/idea about what would be a reasonable answer.

First Name:

Last Name:

Laboratory Section:

1. Draw the Lewis structure for each of the following compounds, then complete the table;

# of bonding pairs/groups on CA(s)

# of lone pairs of electrons on CA(s)




2. Is there anything about the questions that you feel you do not understand? List your concerns/questions.

3. If there is one question you would like to have answered in lecture, what would that question be?
