You have just discovered a new element, "Zoomfatigueium" (Zo). It's a non-metal that has similar properties to those elements in Group 14 of the periodic table. The following questions are about species containing this element. 1) If Zo can be found in Group 14, then how many valence electrons does it have? 2) Zo forms a polyatomic ion with the formula ZoO3 called the "youremuted ion." You are not sure of its charge until you discover that it forms the ionic compound MgZoO3. What must be the charge of the youremuted ion? 3) Draw a plausible Lewis structure for the yourmuted ion, using the answer to Question 2 to guide how many valence electrons must be represented in the structure.
