Draw a Lewis structure of the H 2 molecule. If you could somehow see H 2 molecules, would they look like this Lewis structure? In what ways are real H 2 molecules different from their Lewis structure?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The Lewis structure for H2 and the difference between the real and Lewis structures for the H2 molecule are to be determined.

Concept Introduction:

 Lewis dot symbols contain dots which gives information about the valence electrons.

 Lewis dot symbols show both bonds and lone pairs as dots.

 Lewis structures show bonds as lines and lone pairs as dots.

Explanation of Solution

The number of valence electrons in H2 is calculated as follows:

=2(H atoms)=2(1)=2

Both the electrons are used in bond formation to complete the duet of hydrogen.

Therefore, the number of remaining electrons is zero
