We’re being asked to draw a Lewis structure for SBr4, and provide the electron pair geometry, the molecular geometry and the Hybridization of SulfurS


Part A: Draw the Lewis Structure for SBr4


We first need to determine the total number of valence electrons present in the molecule:


            Group            Valence Electrons

S        6A                   1 × 6 e6 e

Br       7A                   4 × 7 e28 e

                Total:  34 valence e
