    Complete the following table for the indicated substances (Electronegativities: Na = 0.9, N = 3.0, O = 3.5, F = 4.0, Cl = 3.0, Br = 2.8, I = 2.5)

    Chemical \(SO_2\) \(C_2H_4O_2\) \(ICl_5\) \(NaBrO_3\)

    a) Draw the best Lewis structure(s), resonances, and structural isomers
    if any with octet

    b) Include formal charges of all atoms that are non-zero

    c) Indicate polar bonds with dipole arrows toward the more electronegative

    name electronic geometry around central atom
    identify hybridization for center atom
    name molecular geometry around central atom
    show 3-D sketch with atoms & bonds in it
    Identify all bond angles

    How many \(\sigma\) bonds?

    How many \(\pi\) bonds?

    is it an ionic compound, polar or nonpolar molecule or an ion?

    Draw the VB hybrid resonance picture
