Organizing atoms around central atom

Postby Noh_Jasmine_1J » Wed Nov 21, 2018 7:41 am

for SO2Cl2, do the 2 oxygens and 2 chlorines have to be next to each other around the sulfur or can they be directly across from each other?

The O and Cl atoms can be arranged in any way around the S atom. It won't make a difference because it'll still maintain the same stability.
