Question #e6001

1 Answer




Nitrogen trihydride is one nitrogen and three hydrogens because nitrogen can have five valance electrons sharing with the three hydrogen atoms to form a full octet. And each hydrogen has a full duet. This could be represented with Lewis dot models to show sharing of electrons.

This represents covalent bonding due to the type of atoms (nonmetal-nonmetal) and naming system (prefix system).

This molecule is also known as ammonia from Greek times.
