Hi peeps can someone help me with this? The central atom would be sulfur correct? So that means sulfur will invoke hybridization sp2 would be use since there are 3 bonds? However when we invoke hybridization there are 2 2s electron and 2 2p electrons in the orbital(doesn't really know how to say this but basically i am trying to say they are in the same box). So when you invoke hybridization there will be 4 paired up electron and 2 unpaired electron? From what i know paired up electrons are lone pairs and its the unpaired electron that is used in bonding forming? Does that mean we can't use MO theory to explain this? I tried searching the lewis dot structure of this molecule and found out that the sulfur forms 1 double bond and 2 single bond with the oxygen atoms. Why is that so? With 2 single bond and a double bond the sulfur would have a formal charge of +2 and oxygen +1. Ain't the molecule more stable if sulfur forms 3 double bond with oxygen since they won't have any formal charge?
