In an assignment I have to do for chemistry, one of the pieces of information I was given was that sulfur oxide is SO2, i thought that was curious because no. 14 was SiO2, yet all the others along the line are different. The total valence of the two oxygens is -4 and the sulfur is -2 .... how can that make a compound? I thought it had to ultimately equal zero to remain as a compound. Why is it like this?
