General Chemistry 1 - Resonance hybrids - 3
N2O is known to be a laughing gas. Its connectivity is N-N-O.
Draw the 3 resonances structures of N2O.
Circle the resonance form that most closely represents the structure of N2O. Explain.
C is the resonance form that most closely represents N2O: charges are minimized, and the -1 formal charge is on the most electronegative atom.
