Drawing Cobalt Chloride Hexahydrate

  1. Oct 16, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I need to draw a structure of CoCl2 6H20.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I'm not sure how to fit the hydrates in.

    If you could, lead me to a site that explains this.
    Thanks. I apologize for not showing a good attempt

    Water surrounds metal cation. Honestly, question is vague and ambiguous. Cobalt chloride hexahydrate forms a crystal, and all ions/molecules are arranged in the 3d; no idea how detailed and how precise your drawing has to be.

    A lewis structure would be precise enough for my class.
