User: Thank you, but what direction of the arrow of the dipole moment would be for this structure?





Weegy: C-N-H would be incorrect lewis structure because it shows that C is bonded to N which is bonded to H. The books version is correct, because everything should be bonded to C, as is the case in almost all C containing compounds. [ For example: H2CO3 will look like: H .| O .| C=O .| O .| H The periods arent intentionally part of anything here, just trying to line up the bonds nicely. Remember, C will always be the backbone of C-containing compounds. In other examples, such as SO4, S will be the central atom. O's, and H's are usually never the central atom, unless we are talking about water or peroxides, etc. ]
