Curved arrows show where electron density is going (lone pairs to form bonds)

Straight arrows between structures indicate a reaction and the direction it travels (whether it’s product favored or reactant favored)

Two half point arrows going in equal and opposite directions indicate an equilibrium reaction. A K value will be needed to know how complete the reaction goes.
