A step-by-step explanation of how to draw the CH4 Lewis Dot Structure. (Methane)
For the CH4 Lewis structure, calculate the total number of valence electrons for the CH4 molecule (CH4 has 8 valence electrons). After determining how many valence electrons there are in CH4, place them around the central atom to complete the octets.
Note: Hydrogen (H) atoms always go on the outside of a Lewis structure.
The Lewis structure for CH4 is one of the more commonly tested structures in chemistry classes.
