Q1)first let's draw the structure of lewis for CO₂C is the central atom with the O atom on either side of the CO - C - Othe number of valence electrons around each atom of C - 4TH - 6TH - 6total number of valence electrons - 16number of electron pairs - 16/2 = 81 pair is shared between the 1 O atom, and C and another pair of electrons are shared between the C and the other O atom that leaves us with 8 -2 = 6 pairs add 3 pairs of each of atoms (Or as lone pairs and octets for the two O atoms have been completed. But in C, the octet is not complete yet. So to convert the 2 single bonds between C and O to 2 double bonds on each side. then octet of C is complete. number of lone pairs around O is reduced to 2 pairs free.the structure is the following .. . .: O = C = O :determine the geometry allows the use VSEPRnumber of valence electrons around C - 4number of bonds around C (2 Or 2 electrons contributed - 4total number of electron - 8number of electron pairs - 4VSEPR of the geometry of 4 pairs no lone pairs is linear geometry1. The structure lewis CARBON has a carbon atom joined to oxygen atoms by two double bonds.2. The carbon dioxide has a linear relationship of electron geometry3. The carbon atom is sp hybridized.4. The carbon dioxide has two C(p)-S(p) π bond and two Or(sp2)-C(sp) sigma bonds.the geometry of CO₂ linear means that the sp hybridized where each orbital has 50% s and 50% p character. An orbital s and an orbital p have been mixed, and form 2 orbital sp. the rest of the p orbitals taking part in π bonds and orbitals sp to take part in sigma of the union. So between C and O there is a sigma bond and a pi bond. In total, 2 sigma bonds and 2 pi bonds.Or has 3 orbitals sp2 with 2 of them lone pair orbitals. An orbital sp2 bond sp orbital of C the formation of a sigma bond. the other orbital p Or bonds with p-orbital of C to form a pi bond.
