Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by Adam on Sunday, October 25, 2009 at 11:49am.

SO2 can be drawn as a molecule which satisfies the octet rule (using one double bond and
a single bond) or as an expanded octet (using two double bonds). A measurement of the
S-O bond distance demonstrates that the two bond lengths are identical. Does this clarify
which Lewis structure is correct? Explain.
