Can anyone explain to me how SO2 is stable? I keep trying to draw its lewis chart and balance its octet but I can't seem to get it right.
Oxygen wants 2 and Sulfur wants 2.
O=S=O seems wrong because Sulfur wants 2 and actually gets 4 which would be bad.
So I wound up trying to draw a circle where oxygen binds to oxygen and the sulfur binds to them both but somehow that doesn't seem right. Can anyone explain this?
