It is a single structure all of the time––the resonance hybrid. B. Curved Arrows and Electron Pushing Curved arrow A symbol used to show the redistribution of valence electrons. 12 that the only change from resonance contributing structure (a) to (b) and then from (b) to (c) is a redistribution of valence electrons. To show how this redistribution of valence electrons occurs, chemists use a symbol called a curved arrow, which shows the repositioning of an electron pair from its origin (the tail of the arrow) to its destination (the head of the arrow).

In a double bond, they share two pairs of electrons; we show a double bond by drawing two parallel lines between the bonded atoms. In a triple bond, two atoms share three pairs of electrons; we show a triple bond by three parallel lines between the bonded atoms. The following structure combines the unpaired electrons on carbon and oxygen and creates a double bond (C “ O) between these two atoms. The Lewis structure is now complete.

You are already familiar with the fundamentals of the electronic structure of atoms from a previous study of chemistry. 1a). Electrons do not move freely in the space around a nucleus, but rather are confined to regions of space called principal energy levels or, more simply, shells. 1b). 1). An orbital is a region of space that can hold 2 electrons. In this course, we focus on compounds of carbon with hydrogen, oxygen, and nitrogen, all of which use only electrons in s and p orbitals for covalent bonding.
