🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Summers' class at UAA.
We are being asked to identify the resonance forms of S3.
First, we will have to draw the Lewis Structure of S3.
Step 1: Determine the central atom in this molecule.
• There is only 1 atom in the structure → Sulfur is the central atom
Step 2: Calculate the total number of valence electrons present.
Group Valence Electrons
S 6A 6 valence e- x 3
Total = 18 valence e-
Draw the Lewis structure for the trisulfur (S 3) molecule. Be sure to include all resonance structures that satisfy the octet rule.
