Daily Highlight: Bromate Ion BrO3 - Lewis Dot Structure

Hey guys:

Here is the next of my daily highlights Lewis Dot Structure, each day showing you one of my Lewis Dot Structure video guides.  As always, let me know what you think and if you have any suggestions and/or requests, please tell me!  And once again, thank you for reading/watching, don't forget to follow me here or subscribe on YouTube: My YouTube Channel and tell your fellow chemistry enthusiasts!

Today's video: Bromate Ion BrO3 -


  1. Just explain the calcule of 24. I really didn't understand.

    1. 24 is determined by finding the largest multiple of 8 that is smaller than the total number of valence electrons found previously. In this example, the total number of electrons is 26, so the largest multiple of 8 less than 26 is 24, and 24=8*3. This means that there are 3 surrounding atoms around the central atom of this compound.
