Re: Bond angles

Something I used to help memorize is once you get the basic shapes down (ones without lone pairs), once you get to the shapes with lone pairs, the bond angles are similar but for exmaple A trigonal planar is AX3 and an angular shaped molecule is AX2E. Both have three regions of electron density. Tri...

Re: Name of Molecule

Lone pairs actually greatly affects the shape. For example a trigonal planar becomes a trigonal pyramidal if there is a lone pair on the central atom.

Re: VSEPR

In terms of Lewis structures, theres no set rule. It's all conditional.
If the central atom is period 3 and below, you can stick extra lone pairs to it.

Re: VSEPR

For VESPR the format is AXE. A represents the central atom. X are the atoms bonded to the centra atom (ligands), and E represents lone pairs.

So the lone pairs for VESPR formula is on the E with a subscript number.

Re: Resonance

Delocalization means that a shared electron pair is distributed over several pairs of atoms and cannot be identified with just one pair of atoms.

Re: Polarizability

So generally, just to make sure.
Cations increase in polarizability as atomic radius decreases.
Anions increase in polarizability as atomic radius increases ( and less electronegative).

Normal atoms follow same rule as cations ( same trend as radius size)

Re: Unpaired Electrons from Electron Configurations [ENDORSED]

First thing is to look at how many orbitals are in the last sub shell you are given. For example, the last sub shell is p. P has 3 orbitals and can hold 6 electrons. Each orbital must be filled before you can pair electrons. if it is 4p^3, then there are 3 unpaired electrons because you must spread ...

Re: Electrons in an Orbital [ENDORSED]

According to Hund's rule, electrons repulse each other because they are the same charge, and while in the same subshell, they must occupy different orbitals. This means that there are two electrons in the 2p subshell and must first fill two orbitals and have parallel spins. ( two unpaired electrons )

Re: Electrons in an Orbital [ENDORSED]

Yes, when two electrons are in the same orbital they must have opposite spins. The short term for these electrons is that they are "paired".

To add to Nicole, many times you will need to find the amount of grams needed to make a certain amount of Molarity as well. This is easy once you find the moles and then convert by multiplying the molecular mass.

Re: Ionic Concentrations

You would first find the moles of the entire molecule. Once you have that, you would find the molar ratios. For example, NaCl. If you found the moles of NaCl and need the Cl ion concentration, it is a 1:1 ratio of moles since there is 1 mol of Cl- in the compound. You would use that amount of moles ...

So you would take the mole you found in part a) and multiply it by 2 to get the moles of CL ...
