General Chemistry 1 - Final

Consider the carbonyl sulfide OCS where the carbon atom is the central atom.

1) Draw the three resonance structures for this molecule.

2) What is the most stable resonance form? Explain.

3) A C=O double bond has an average bond length of 124 pm. What can you say about the CO bond length of the carbonyl sulfide?

4) Is OCS polar? If yes, draw the dipole moment of the most stable resonance form.
