Textbook Problem

A liquid compound used in dry cleaning contains 14.5% C and 85.5% Cl by mass and has a molecular mass of 166 amu. Write the Lewis formula for the molecule.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The formula of the given liquid compound and its Lewis formula has to be written.

Concept introduction:

Lewis structure, otherwise known as Lewis dot diagrams or electron dot structures that show the bond between atoms and lone pairs of electrons that are present in the molecule. Lewis structure represents each atom and their position in structure using the chemical symbol.  Excess electrons forms the lone pair are given by pair of dots, and are located next to the atom.

Explanation

Let us consider a 100 g sample is converted to moles

14.5gC×1molC12.01gC=1.207molC

85.5gCl×1molCl35.453gCl=2.4116molCl
