Problem

What is the electron pair geometry and Molecular geometry of SCl 2?

 

Solution

We’re being asked to determine the electron pair and molecular geometry of SCl2


The possible electron pair and molecular geometries are:



To do so, we first need to draw a Lewis structure for SCl2.

For this, we need to do the following steps:

Step 1: Determine the central atom in this molecule.

Step 2: Calculate the total number of valence electrons present.

Step 3: Draw the Lewis structure for the molecule.

Step 4: Determine the electron pair geometry of the molecule.

Step 5: Determine the molecular geometry of the molecule.
