# How would we represent the Lewis structure of sulfur dioxide?

And thus for $S {O}_{2}$ we might write....$O = \stackrel{+}{\ddot{S}} - {O}^{-}$; around sulfur there are 5 electrons, and the molecule is bent, $\angle O - S - O = {119}^{\circ}$
We know that electronegativity decreases down a group, and on the Pauling scale the electronegativity of $S = 2.58$, and for $O = 3.44$...
