Determine the bond angles for each molecule in Problem 69.
Step 1 of 4
Here, we are going to determine the bond angles for the given molecules.
Bond angle is defined as the angle between the orbitals containing bonding electron pairs around the central atom in a molecule.
Number of valence electrons in N = 5
Number of valence electrons in O = 6
Total number of valence electrons in = (2 5) + 6 = 16
The 18 electrons must be distributed in such a way that all the atoms get 8 electron each. The lewis structure for the molecule is:
From the above structure, it is clear that N2O has linear structure. Thus, the bond angle in is 180°.
