(a) N2O (oxygen is terminal)

(b) SO2

(c) H2S

(d) PF3

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

PROBLEM 71P

Determine the bond angles for each molecule in.

(a) N2O (oxygen is terminal)

(b) SO2

(c) H2S

(d) PF3

Solution: Here, we are going to determine the bond angles for the given molecules.

Step1:

Bond angle is defined as the angle between the orbitals containing bonding electron pairs around the central atom in a molecule.

Step2:

N2O

Number of valence electrons in N = 5

Number of valence electrons in O = 6

Total number of valence electrons in N2O = (2 x 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 N2O is 180o.

    b)        SO2

Number of valence electrons in S = 6

Number of valence electrons in O = 6

Total number of valence electrons in SO2 = (2 x 6) + 6 = 18

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:

                

Due to the lone pair-bond pair repulsion,...
