Question

Sulfuric acid is manufactured by a series of reactions represented by the following equations:

S8(s)+8O2(g) ⟶ 8SO2(g)

2SO2(g)+O2(g) ⟶ 2SO3(g)

SO3(g)+H2O(l) ⟶ H2SO4(l)

Draw a Lewis structure, predict the molecular geometry by VSEPR, and determine the hybridization of sulfur for the following:

(a) circular S8 molecule

(b) SO2 molecule

(c) SO3 molecule

(d) H2SO4 molecule (the hydrogen atoms are bonded to oxygen atoms)
