I was wondering what the correct structural formula of sodium ethanoate is? Do you write the negative and positive oxygen and sodium in it or not? How about when drawing the displayed formula? Do you still have the charges? thanks

The sodium and the oxygen aren't bonded, they are just in the same solution as ions. you write the oxygen with a negative charge, and sodium with a positive ion next to each other

some ms gave them as either way though? so if I write the + and - will I definitely get the marks do you think (aqa)
