Problem: Determine the molecular geometry of SCl6.

FREE Expert Solution

We’re being asked to draw a Lewis structure for SCl6. We first need to determine the total number of valence electrons present in the molecule:


            Group            Valence Electrons

    S         6A                   1 × 6 e =   6 e

   Cl         7A                   6 × 7 e42 e

                    Total:  48 valence e
