Problem 71P

Determine the bond angles for each molecule in Problem 69.

Step-by-Step Solution:

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.

     a)  

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°.
