« on: August 08, 2008, 10:14:58 AM »
need help with this question....

what is the most stable formal charge of each atom in dinitrogen monoxide using nitrogen as the central atom?

i tried searching it on the net and consulted some books, but i'm not sure with my answer. is the answer +4, -4, or am i wrong? i'm not really good at this. ;D

Formal charges are calculated from possible Lewis structures. What Lewis structure(s) have you drawn for the dinitrogen monoxide?
