FREE Expert Solution

To draw the Lewis structure of HCSNH2, determine the valence electrons of each atom present then count the total number of electrons in the compound:

            Group #          # of valence e-

H         1A                   1 e- x 3 = 3 e-

C         4A                   4 e-

        5A                   5 e-

S         6A                   6 e-

Total: 18 e-
