YOU VIOLATE THE O CTET R ULE WHEN T HERE ARE MORE THAN 8 SHARED ELECTRONS 1. Electron Repulsion a. The molecular geometry of a certain molecule is driven by the idea that electrons and the domains they are in try to stay as far apart from one another that they can i. This is called the VSEPR theory 2. Larger Molecules a. When dealing with larger molecule s, you can identify the geometry around different central atoms in the molecule.
