On a recent test of mine we had to draw NO2's lewis structure and say if it is polar and/or linear. I found drawings of the lewis structure in many places, but all seem to have different answers. I am interested if it is linear or not (most lewis dot diagrams show the 1 electron on the nitrogen, but no bent shape), and if it is linear, whether it's resonance structures combined, would make it non-polar. Thanks, Ryan
