# Problem: Part C. Two bonding arrangements exist for this molecule that result in formal charges of zero for all atoms One bonding arrangement is a chain with two central sulfur atoms (FSSF) The other bonding arrangement has just one central sulfur atom with the remaining atoms around it. Determine the molecular geometry of the atoms around the central sulfur atom(s) in each bonding arrangement. When elemental sulfur, S8, is heated with AgF, a gas forms that contains only sulfur and fluorine. The following tests were done to characterize this gaseous product.The density of the gas was found to be 0.807 g/L at 152 mmHg and 35 C.When the gas reacts with water, all the fluorine is converted to aqueous HF. A 480-mL sample of the dry gas at 125 mmHg and 28 C, when reacted with 80.0 mL of water, yielded a 0.080 M solution of HF.

Part C. Two bonding arrangements exist for this molecule that result in formal charges of zero for all atoms One bonding arrangement is a chain with two central sulfur atoms (FSSF) The other bonding arrangement has just one central sulfur atom with the remaining atoms around it.

Determine the molecular geometry of the atoms around the central sulfur atom(s) in each bonding arrangement.

When elemental sulfur, S8, is heated with AgF, a gas forms that contains only sulfur and fluorine. The following tests were done to characterize this gaseous product.

The density of the gas was found to be 0.807 g/L at 152 mmHg and 35 C.

When the gas reacts with water, all the fluorine is converted to aqueous HF. A 480-mL sample of the dry gas at 125 mmHg and 28 C, when reacted with 80.0 mL of water, yielded a 0.080 M solution of HF.
