How to Calculate lone pairs? what is a lone pair??

Asked by Varad Parandekar 15th January 2014, 10:47 PM
Answered by Expert
Hi Varad, A lone pair is a valence electron pair which is not shared with another atom and is sometimes called a non-bonding pair. Lone pairs are found in the outermost electron shell of atoms. They can be identified by using a Lewis structure. Electron pairs are considered lone pairs if two electrons are paired but are not used in chemical bonding. Hope this clears your query!!
