Lewis structures, or electron dot structures, depict the bonds between atoms of a molecule and any unbonded electron pairs. Here is how to draw them..Lewis diagrams aka Lewis structures, Lewis dot structures, Lewis dot diagrams are useful because they use simple drawings to show how atoms share valence electrons in molecules, polyatomic ions, and other covalent structures. This is my first tutorial in the series. Please also see the second video in my Lewis diagram series .The Lewis structure was named after Gilbert N. Lewis, who introduced it in his article The Atom and the Molecule. Lewis structures extend the concept of the electron dot diagram by adding lines between atoms to represent shared pairs in a chemical bond..After that I draw the Lewis dot structure for Carbon C . Note Carbon is in Group sometimes called . Since it is in Group it will have valence electrons. When you draw the Lewis structure for Carbon you’ll put four “dots” or valance electrons around the element symbol C ..
