Sulfur Trioxide on Chicken

Sulfur trioxide is sulfur double bonded to 3 oxygen atoms, whereas sulfite has a lone pair of electrons on the sulfur and a 4/3 bond to each oxygen. (This is the resonance equivalent, which represents sharing an extra bond among the 3 oxygen atoms) Also, sulfite has 2 more electrons than sulfur trioxide, making it an anion with a charge of -2.
