A certain AB4 molecule has a “seesaw” shape:
From which of the fundamental geometries shown in Figure could you remove one or more atoms to create a molecule having this seesaw shape? [Section]
Figure Shapes allowing maximum distances between B atoms in ABn molecules.
Step 1 of 3
CEM 141 Lecture 30: Molecular Shape and Polarity Dr. Jian Hu November 14 , 2016 For NH 4 the electron center geometry is the same as its molecular geometry because it does not have lone electron pairs CO 2as a linear electron center geometry, so the carbon has sp hybridization H2O has a bent molecular shape because it has 2 lone pairs of electrons When drawing Lewis Structures, formal charge should be kept to around zero (e.g. sulfur dioxide) Determining molecular shape: 1. Lewis Structure 2. Count the number of electron centers 3. Determine the geometry of electron centers by VSEPR 4. Molecular Shape (look at the atoms) Polarity An atom that has a high effective nuclear charge at
