|How to Write Lewis Structures
||Decide which atoms are bonded.
||Count all valence electrons
||Place two electrons in each bond.
||Complete the octets of the atoms attached to the central atom
by adding e-'s in pairs.
||Place any remaining electrons on the central atom in pairs.
||If the central atom does not have an octet, form double bonds.
If necessary form triple bonds.
