A step-by-step explanation of how to draw the NO2 Lewis Structure (Nitrogen Dioxide).The NO2 Lewis structure has a total of 17 valence electrons. It`s not common to have an odd number of valence electrons in a Lewis structure. Because of this we`ll try to get as close to an octet as we can on the central Nitrogen (N) atom. This will mean that it will only have 7 valence electrons. In the Lewis structure for NO2 the Nitrogen atom is the least electronegative atom and goes at the center of the structure.For the NO2 Lewis structure, calculate the total number of valence electrons for the NO2 molecule. After determining how many valence electrons there are in NO2, place them around the central atom to complete the octets. Get more chemistry help at
