Full Answer

Each dot represents a valence electron, and the line represents a pair of bonded electrons. The Lewis structure can also be written with lines replacing each pair of electrons or with a pair of dots in place of the line. A valence electron is an electron in the outer shell of an atom. Each molecule of difluorine contains 14 valence electrons, with seven in each atom of fluorine.
