Concept:

Problem: Complete the Lewis dot structure for H2SO3 (in which H is bonded to O).

FREE Expert Solution

When drawing Lewis dot structure, count the valence electrons of each element in the structure and the total valence electrons of the compound.

H → Group 1A → 1 valence e- x 2
→ Group 6A → 6 valence e- 
O → Group 6A → 6 valence e- x 3
Total valence e- → 26 e-
