We use our knowledge of valance electrons to determine what he formal charge of the molecule will be.
Calculating formal and net charge.
Easiest formal charge formula you will find anywhere on the internet:
The Net Charge is the sum of all the formal charges on a molecule.
Calculate the formal charge of the following molecule:
Calculate the formal charges of ALL atoms.
Calculate the net charge of the molecule
Calculate the total charge of the molecule
Hell yeah! That’s literally all there is to know. Don’t let any professors complicate it more for you.
