Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Among the given ions, the ion which corresponds to the given Lewis structure is to be identified.

Concept Introduction:

The representation an element along with its valence electrons is referred to as Lewis symbol or Electron Dot Symbol. The Lewis structure exhibits the connection between atoms. Each dot around an atom represents electrons.

The geometry of molecule is determined by electron pair present around the central atom.

The formula to calculate the number of electron pairs in compound is,

Electronpairs=bondpairs+lonepairs

Generally, the shape of the molecule will be linear if electron pairs are two and the shape of the molecule will be trigonal planar if electron pairs are 3.

Explanation

Reason for correct option:

The given Lewis structure is,

Figure 1

The number of valence electrons in the above Lewis structure is 14. Two valence electrons of each oxygen atom combine with each other to form one bond pair of electrons.

(d) The given ion is O22. The number of valence electrons in O is 6.

The total number of valence electrons in the given ions is calculated as shown below.

Totalvalenceelectrons=nValenceelectronsinO+Negativecharge (1)

Where,

• n is the number of atoms.

Substitute the values of n, valence electrons of O and negative charge in the equation (1)
