Problem 35E

Molecular Shapes; the VSEPR Model (Sections)

(a) Explain why BrF4 - is square planar, whereas BF4 - is tetrahedral., (b) How would you expect the H—X—H bond angle to vary in the series H2O, H2S, H2Se? Explain. (Hint: The size of an electron pair domain dEEnds in part on the electronegativity of the central atom.)
