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.
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...
