    Hey, its been a few months since I've recapped this stuff
    No worries

    Anyway. I'm just really confused whether this thread is about Silicon Dioxide or Sulfur Dioxide now. Because OP wrote S as the symbol but said Silicon

    OP for the record:

    Silicon dioxide is giant covalent with each silicon singly bonded to 4 oxygens.
    Sulfur dioxide is simple covalent with each sulfur doubly bonded to 2 oxygens, and is bent.

    In SO2, the sulfur clearly has an oxidation state of +4...
    Hi, so for the dot and cross diagram of so2 , it is just 2 double covalent bonds right? Cheers
