Draw the lewis structure of SF2 showing all lone pairs?
- SF2 Lewis structure is made up of two atoms, sulfur (S), and fluorine (F).
- The sulfur (S) is in the central position and fluorine (F) atoms are on either side of it.
- The lewis structure of SF2 contains 8 lone pairs and 2 bonding pairs.
It should be noted that, in lewis’s structure, the lone pairs are represented as dots and bond pairs are as single, double, or triple bonds.
So, in the SF2 lewis structure, there are 2 bond pairs means 4 bonding electrons and 8 lone pairs (2 on the central atom + 3 on each fluorine atom) are present.
