Textbook Problem

Do any of the atoms in an ibuprofen molecule have a nonzero formal charge?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: It should be identified that any of the atom in an ibuprofen molecule have nonzero formal charge.

Concept Introduction:

A formal charge (FC) is the charge assigned to an atom in a molecule, irrespective of relative electro negativity by thinking that electrons in all chemical bonds are shared equally among atoms.

Formal charge of an atom can be determined by the given formula.

Formalcharge(FC)=(numberofvalenceelectroninatom)[12(numberofbondingelectrons)+(numberofnon-bondingelectrons)]

Explanation

The formal charge for atom in molecule is determined by plugging the number of valence bonded and non-bonded electrons around the respective atom in a molecule into the formula.

The formula for formal charge is as follows,

Formalcharge(FC)=(numberofvalenceelectroninatom)−</
