What are the rules for drawing Lewis dot diagrams, besides the 1) Carbon usually has a full octet 2) Some atoms become electron deficient, others electron sufficient 3) The Duet Rule 4) Link OH if written in the formula What the "other" rules? For example, i try to draw glucose, C6H12O6: *I make a hexagon of six single-bonded carbon *I attached a double-bond with oxygen to each carbon (carbon has 2 single bonds, and one double bond, so it obeys octet rule) *I finally attach two single-bonded hydrogen to each oxygen. Why doesn't this work? I have six carbon with octets, six double-bonded oxygen=carbon bonds (six oxygen), and two hydrogen at each oxygen C-C-C-C-C-C with C=O, where each oxygen then bonds with two hydrogen Why is this incorrect----what are the other rules for drawing lewis diagrams??
