what is the lewis dot structure for the calcium ion?Advertisement
Best Answer: Calcium has two valence electrons. The Lewis dot diagram would have two dots. Take the two electrons away and it has no dots. Or since the outermost energy level of Ca2+ is now the 3s and 3p which are all filled, you could draw it with eight dots, but I wouldn't. By the ... - read more
Drawing Lewis Dot Structures. Add up the total number of valence electrons in the molecule by totalling the valence electrons on each atom in the molecule or polyatomic ion. - read more
