Homework Help: Need help finishing my lab

  1. Nov 30, 2008 #1
    Need help finishing my lab....

    I am having a hard time completing my lab. I was given 13 chemicals and have to draw the Lewis dot structure, there 3-D structures, Shape, Hybridization, bond angles, Polarity, and there Intermolecular forces. I was wondering if anyone could tell me the Shape (Linear, Trigonal planar,...) and Hybridization of the chemicals. I was told some of them have more then one shape in the bond. H2O, CH3OH, C2H5OH, CH3COOH, CH3COCH3, C6H14, NaCl, CaCO3, C10H8, C6H4OHCOOH, C6H12O6, C6H8O6, C40H56......I know it is a lot but any help will be appreciated. Thank you in advance.

    You just don't ask. You try, you tell us what you did, we push you in the right direction.

    I did try....I did everything I just dont really get the shape and hybridization thing....But I can figure it out I just have one more question....How do you draw a Lewis dot structure and a 3-D structure for something tat shares double bonds....I can draw one of them i don't know if its the 3-D or the Lewis dot....
