Sulphur dioxide is made up of two(2) elements. They are Sulphur and Oxygen. They are both found in the Periodic Table.

Their chemical combination is one sulphur(S) and two oxygens(O). Its chemical formula is 'SO2'. Their structural arrangement is 'O=S=O', That is each oxygen has a 'double bond to the sulphur.

As the name suggests , it is ONE sulphur and TWO (oxygens ( di-oxide). It combines with water to form sulphurous acid (Note the spelling) H2SO3.

NB For information there is also another sulphur/oxygen gas, viz. sulphur trioxide (SO3). This gas dissolves in water to form sulphuric acid (H2SO4)

The chemical reaction equation is SO3 + H2O = H2SO4 .
