|AP Chemistry -- Molecular Architecture Resonance Worksheet|
|1.||Draw resonance structures for SO2.|
|2.||Draw resonance structures for the nitrate ion, NO3-.|
|3.||Draw the resonance structures for CO32-.|
|4.||Arrange the following in order of increasing C-O bond length: CO, CO32-, CO2.|
|5.||How many resonance
structures could be written for the N2O4 molecules?
Its skeletal structure is:
|6.||The Lewis structure
of CO2 was given as: ::O = C = O :: ; but two other resonance
structures can also be drawn for it. hat are they?
|7.||What is a resonance hybrid? How does it differ from the resonance structures drawn for a molecule?|
|8.||Write Lewis structures for the nitrate ion, NO3-, and for nitric acid HNO3. How many equivalent oxygens are there in each structure? Compare the number of resonance structures for each.|
|9.||Oxalate ion, C2O42-
has the following arrangement of atoms.
|10.||Draw all the resonance
structures as well as the final resonance hybrid for any of the structures
below which demonstrate resonance.
