1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Draw the lewis structure for ClNO2 3. The attempt at a solution When I first drew this I had two double bonds in between the N and the Os. However, the answer suggests only one is a double bond in the structure. Why is this correct? Aren't we suppose to balance the formula charges? When I have 2 double bonds the formal charge for the oxygens are zero (6-4(lone pair electrons)-2(bonds pairs)) and the nitrogen (5-0(lone pair electrons)-5(bond pairs)) is zero as well.
