Given that S is the central atom, draw a Lewis structure of OSF4 in which the formal charges of all atoms are zero

  • chemistry -

    We can't draw pictures on the board.

    S is the central atom.
    Place 4 F atoms attached to S. Place 8 electrons around each F.
    Place a O= to S with four additional electrons around O.
    40 electrons total.
