Lewis diagrams (aka Lewis structures, Lewis dot structures, Lewis dot diagrams) are useful because they use simple drawings to show how atoms share valence electrons in molecules, polyatomic ions, and other covalent structures. This is my first tutorial in the series.

Please also see the second video in my Lewis diagram series:

For simple molecules, follow these 5 steps:
1) count all the valence electrons
2) put the singular atom in the middle
3) draw in single bonds
4) put the remaining electrons in as lone pairs
5) give every atom an octet or duet by turning lone pairs into double or triple bonds as needed

My goal is to make chemistry easier 😉
