Molecular Structures

- Draw the Lewis dot structure for the molecule
- Use gumdrops, marshmallows, and toothpicks to build a 3D representation of the molecule
- Gumdrop=atom
- Toothpick=bond
- Small marshmallow=shared electron pair
- Large marshmallow=lone electron pair

- Draw a sketch on sheet of your molecule (remember a key!)

- What do you notice about methane?
- How many shared electron pairs are surrounding the central carbon?
- Enter number into Quizdom Remote

What do you think would happen if you removed an Fluorine from the central Sulfur atom?

What if you removed another?

How do you think this would affect the molecular model?

The molecular structure is based on electrons (Shared or unshared) arranging themselves so that they have the greatest distance between one another around the central atom.

The goal is to minimize the repulsion between the negatively-charged electrons.
