QUESTION

# What is the molecular shape of SCl_2?

"SCl"_2 has a bent with bond angles of approximately 103^@ and a bond lenght of "201 pm".

All 20 (6 from "S", and 7 from each "Cl" atom) are accounted for by the Lewis structure, so can now be used to determine molecular shape.
"S", which is the molecule's central atom, has a steric number equal to 4 and a coordination number equal to 2.
Notice that "SCl"_2 has a molecualr geometry that is very similar to water's, the only differences being the smaller bond angle (water has a bond angle of 104.45^@) and the longer bond lenght (water has a bond lenght of "95.84 pm".
