We have to determine how many nonbonding electron pairs are there in the (CH3)2S molecule.
To determine the number of nonbonding electrons pairs, we will draw the Lewis structure of this molecule.
We will be following these steps:
Step 1: Determine the central atom in the molecule.
Step 2: Calculate the total number of valence electrons present.
Step 3: Draw the Lewis structure for the molecule.
How many nonbonding electron pairs are there in each of the following molecules?
