Homework Help: New Chem undergrad

  1. Sep 20, 2008 #1

    This is my first science subject ever, and I am having difficulties so I would love to have all the help I can get please.
    My assignment is about Lewis structures and empirical formula for the following

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    1.potassium iodine, 2. calcium flouride, (these two are ionic compounds)
    3. sulfur chlorine ( covalent compound)

    Write both an equation using Lewis structures and a balanced chemical equation for the ff reaction
    1. Silicon atoms and chlorine molecules
    2. Lithium atoms and bromine molecules
    3. Ethylene molecules (C2H4) and chlorine molecules; the product is C2H4Cl2

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    You need to attempt the question and let us know where your stuck. No one will do the work on here for you. We need to understand the material. :)
