That depends. The actual placement of each atom is not important. A Lewis structure is the same as the answer as long as it has the same atoms bonded to each other with the same types of bonds and the same number of non-bonding electrons around each atom. This works because molecules can rotate in three-dimensional space.Tags: Chemistry

- Do answers need to be in scientific notation or decimal? Is there a general rule?
- Does it matter that my Lewis structures do not look exactly like the ones in the answer book?
- When I try to determine polar or non-polar, my Lewis structures do not lead me to the same conclusions as the book. Why, for example, is CO2 non polar?
- How do you determine the salt produced in acid/base reactions in chemistry Module 9?
- How did you get K2SO4 as a product on Module 9 practice problem 10 in chemistry?
- In Chemistry On Your Own 5.10 (d), why couldn't you put the F's across from each other and the Cl's across from each other? Wouldn't the bonds cancel each other out then and make the molecule non-polar covalent?
- Why is the answer rounded to 2 x 10^3 J/g°C in Module 12, practice problem 10, Exploring Creation with Chemistry?
- In chemistry Example 3.2, how do you do the math?
- In chemistry Example 3.3, how do you do the math?
- How do you figure out the significant figures in practice problem 7 from Module 12 in Chemistry?
- Can I use calculators with your courses? If so, what kind should I use?
- How do you balance the equation in chemistry on your own 9.4c?
- In Chemistry Module 5, Review Question 8, how can two atoms have the same electronegativity? Doesn't it vary as you travel around on the chart?
- How do you know that the salt in chemistry On Your Own 13.1 c is K2CO3?
- Is the periodic table allowed to be used on the tests?
- On Chemistry Module 1 Test, problem 17, why is the answer rounded to the tens place?
- How did you arrive at the answer for problem 14 on the Module 4 Chemistry test?
- Do non-bonding electrons have to be drawn as pairs in a Lewis Structure?
