Problem: Which has the most unpaired electrons?A. S B. S2- C. S+ D. S- E. None have unpaired electrons

FREE Expert Solution
  • Figure out the Lewis dot structure for S, S2-, S+, and S- and determine which has the most unpaired electron.
  • First thing is to determine the valence electrons in S and its ion forms
  • S is a Group 6A element which means it has 6 valence electrons
