QUESTION

Does SO2 have a resonance structure?

• Yes, SO_2 have structure.
• First I would like to describe what is resonance structure and then come to your question.

01. Draw the lewis structure of CO_3^2-

• When you draw the lewis structure there are some other lewis structures that you can draw.But you draw the lewis structure as most stable structure.

02. Draw the resonance structure of CO_3^2-

• These structures are drawn by exchanging lone pair with pi bond.

03. Give a definition for resonance structure

When 02 or more lewis structures that differ only in arrangement or distribution of electron can be drawn for a given molecule or ion is called as resonance structure

• This phenomena is called resonance.According to this lewis structures are not actually existing but they are inter-converting

Inter converting lewis structures === > Resonance structures

• And resonance structures are hypothetical.The true structure is said to be the resonance hybrid, which is a common structure of all the resonance structures.

04. What is the resonance hybrid of C0_3^2-

05. Draw the resonance structure of SO_2
