QUESTION

# What is the Lewis structure of N2?

In order to come up with this answer, you first need to know the number of valence electrons for Nitrogen. Since N is a member of the Group 5A (based on the periodic table), the number of electrons in its outermost shell must be 5.

Here is the electron dot structure for a single N atom:

The total number of valence electrons between the two N atoms is 10 e^-. Also, for the structure to be correct, it must follow the octet rule (eight electrons per atom). Hence,
