11th Class Chemistry Chemical Bonding and Molecular Structure

  • question_answer 4) Explain the structure of \[C{{O}_{2}}\] molecule.


    Electron dot structure of \[C{{O}_{2}}\] molecule is given below: Carbon-oxygen bond length in \[C{{O}_{2}}\] molecule is 115 pm. It is intermediate between \[(C=O)\] and \[(C\equiv O)\]bonds. Thus, the structure of \[C{{O}_{2}}\] is best described as a resonance hybrid of the following canonical forms.
