Homework Help: Lewis Dot Diagram for SiC2

  1. Mar 15, 2013 #1
    I need to determine what type of covalent bond SiC2 (silicon dicarbide) and so creating the lewis dot diagram is helpful. I know I have 12 electrons available but I can't seem to draw it :/

    Try this attachment. I'm not 100% sure about the structure, but it'll give you a rough idea!

    :C = C = Si: is another one!
