A step-by-step explanation of how to draw the PF3 Lewis Structure (Phosphorus Trifluoride).
For the PF3 Lewis structure we first count the valence electrons for the PF3 molecule using the periodic table. Once we know how many valence electrons there are in PF3 we can distribute them around the central atom and attempt to fill the outer shells of each atom.
Be sure to check to make sure we only used the number of available valence electrons we calculated earlier.
There a total of 26 valence electrons for the PF3 Lewis structure.
