A step-by-step explanation of how to draw the Lewis dot structure for C (Carbon). I show you where Carbon is on the periodic table and how how to determine how many valence electrons it has. After that I draw the Lewis dot structure for Carbon (C).
Note: Carbon is in Group 4 (sometimes called 14). Since it is in Group 4 it will have 4 valence electrons. When you draw the Lewis structure for Carbon you'll put four "dots" or valance electrons around the element symbol (C).
