Sulfuric acid is manufactured by a series of reactions represented by the following equations:
S8(s) + 8O2(g) ⟶ 8SO2(g)
2SO2(g) + O2(g) ⟶ 2SO3(g)
SO3(g) + H2O(l) ⟶ H2SO4(l)
Draw a Lewis structure, predict the molecular geometry by VSEPR, and determine the hybridization of sulfur for the following:
a. circular S8 molecule
