Problem

NO3- :

Molecular geometry?

Ideal bond angle?

Are polar bonds present?

Is there an overall dipole?

Octect rule violator and how?

Solution
  • N will appear as our central atom since it is less electronegative than O

  • N will appear to have 3 Os single bonded on it however, each O atom will appear as negatively charged with 3 lone pairs in it

  • One O must have a double bond with N making it neutral while N as positively charged

  • This will give a total charge of -1
