Drawing Lewis Structures

Video tutorial
The Lewis model of molecular electronic structure describes how atoms bond to each other. It enables us to predict whether a molecule is likely to exist, how strong it's bonds are and the number of lone pairs it has. This then enables us to work out the shape. Molecules are more stable than the separate atoms from which they are made.
