Step-by-Step Solution:

Problem 76P

Determine the molecular geometry of each polyatomic ion.

    (a)

    (b)

    (c)

    (d)


                                                         Step by Step Solution

Step 1 of 4

Molecular geometry used to describe the shape of a molecule.

The given polyatomic ion - .

Name of the polyatomic ion - Chlorate ion.

The structure of  is as follows.

In the given ion, the central atom - chlorine.

And it is attached to the four groups which all are bonding groups.

Hence, it has 4 - electron groups and 4- bonding groups.

From the above table, if the molecule has 4 electrons groups and 4 bonding, the shape is tetrahedral in both electron and molecular geometry.

The molecular geometry of  is shown below.

Therefore, the molecular geometry of a chlorate ion is tetrahedral.
