A step-by-step explanation of how to draw the HClO3 Lewis Structure (Chloric Acid).When we have an H (or H2) in front of a polyatomic molecule (like CO3, SO4, NO2, etc.) we know that it`s an acid. This means that the Hydrogen atoms will be attached to the outside of the oxygen molecules. Knowing this information makes it much easier to draw the Lewis structure for HClO3.For the HClO3 Lewis structure, calculate the total number of valence electrons for the HClO3 molecule. After determining how many valence electrons there are in HClO3, place them around the central atom to complete the octets. Be sure to use the number of available valence electrons you found earlier.For the Lewis structure for HClO3 you should take formal charges into account to find the best Lewis structure for the molecule.Get more chemistry help at
