Drawing the Lewis Structure for CH3Br

Transcript: This is the CH3Br Lewis structure. For CH3Br, there are a total of 14 valence electrons. Hydrogen always goes on the outside, and since Carbon is less electronegative than Bromine, we'll put the Carbon in the center and the Bromine on top. We have 14 valence electrons for the CH3Br Lewis structure. Put two between atoms to form chemical bonds. We've used eight. And then around the Bromine: 10, 12, and 14 valence electrons. So we've used all 14 valence electrons. The Hydrogens each have two. The Bromine has eight, and the Carbon has eight, as well. So the outer shells are full on all the atoms in CH3Br.

So that's it: this is the Lewis structure for CH3Br. This is Dr. B., and thanks for watching.
