Problem 20SP

(a) Draw the resonance forms for SO2 (bonded O—S—O)

(b) Draw the resonance forms for ozone (bonded O—O—O)

(c) Sulfur dioxide has one more resonance form than ozone. Explain why this structure is not possible for ozone.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Step-1

We have to draw the resonance forms for SO2 (bonded O—S—O)

Sulfur dioxide ( SO2) has two resonance structures which contribute equally to the overall hybrid structure of the molecule.

First we have to draw the  two Lewis structures for SO2.              

                             

                                                                         (Resonance structure of SO2)

Step-2

(b) The resonance structure...
