THIS USER ASKED 👇
In the molecule SCl2SCl2, sulfur makes two covalent bonds. Therefore, two of its six valence electrons need to be unpaired. The orbitals with the same energy are known as degenerate orbitals. For example, the p subshell has three degenerate orbital, namely, pxpx, pypy, and pzpz. How many degenerate orbitals are needed to contain six electrons with two of them unpaired
THIS IS THE BEST ANSWER 👇
one degenerate orbital is required
Sulfur has atomic number 16
electronic configuration 1s2 2s2 2p6 3s2 3p4
sulfur has a 3d substrate with higher energy levels like 3s and 3p because they are in the same quantitative main shell.
sulfur has 2 bond pairs, 2 individual pairs and 2 unpaid electrons
sulfur obeys octet rule in this compound. the compound undergoes excitation.
