    Hello guys,

    What would the geometry of SO2 molecule look like? is it possible to have
    O=S=O which is a linear?

    Thanks!

    should be bent cuz there is 1 set of unpaired electrons on the Sulfur which should repel and cause the bent-ness. It's only linear if there are no unpaired e's on the middle atom (i.e. CO2)
