What would be the electron dot structure of a molecule of sulphur which is made up of eight atoms of sulphur? (Hint – the eight atoms of sulphur are joined together in the form of a ring.)
What are the two properties of carbon which lead to the huge number of
carbon compounds we see around us?
The two features of carbon that give rise to a large number of compounds are as follows:
→ Catenation – It is the ability to form bonds with other atoms of carbon.
→ Tetravalency – With the valency of four, carbon is capable of bonding with four other atoms.
