If a molecure is 'bent' or non-linear, how many bonding/lone pairs does it have and whats the angles?
1) 2 bonding, 1 lone, less than 120o or 2) 2 bonding, 2 lone, 104.5o
1 of 5
What angle does a molecule with 4 bonding pairs have? whats it called?
109.5o and tetrahedral
2 of 5
Decribe a trigonal planar shape
3 bonding, 120o
