How do you write/draw a Lewis structure for N?
class=answerHeader>Explanation: The Lewis structure of Nitrogen atom
can be drawn if one knows the number of valence electrons of Nitrogen.The
electronic configuration of Nitrogen is 1%s^2% 2%s^2% 2%p^3%
nitrogen atom has five electron present in 2s and 2p subshell and these
electrons are called valence electrons.Nitrogen atom has 5 valence
electrons, so its Lewis dot symbol for N is
This video shows how to use the periodic table to draw Lewis structures and
figure out how many valence electrons an atom has.
