What is the hybridization of the central atom for SCl2? I know it's sp3 but how would you show it?
& how many sigma/pi bonds are there? My guess is 1 sigma bond for each S, Cl bond so 2 sigma bonds total...is that how you would word it?
Also, what is the bond polarity? polar? how would you "predict" and then prove it?
SCl2 has an electron geometry known as tetrahedral and a bent molecular geometry.
The electron geometry reveals that there are four electron pairs which means that this molecule's hybridization is sp3.
Because the electron geometry is bent it is a polar molecule. Two sigma bonds is correct. There are no pi bonds in sp3 hybridization.
SCl2 S stands for sulfur + di (meaning 2) chloride
