An element whose electronic configuration is #1s^(2)2s^(2)2p^6# is chemically bound to TWO atoms of an element whose atomic mass is #32.06*g*mol^-1#. What is the compound described?
You have specified the
All the bumf about electronic configuration was there to confuse and distract you. You have a Group 14 element with 6 electrons.....This means that you got 6 protons. And if there are 6 protons, 6 positively charged nuclear particles, then
But we are not finished there. We were further told that this carbon element was bound to a Group 16 element, whose atomic mass was
And the standard Lewis structure for carbon disulfide is
