I believe we do need to know the different shapes (trigonal pyramid etc) and be able to recognize them. I think having a general idea of bond angles is imp to be able to comment on the relative size of the bond angles of the diff bonds.

An example of when atom positions influence the shape is for the sulfite ion (SO3)^2-. In this, there are three bonding pairs and one lone pair. Thus, although the molecular shape tetrahedral to reduce repulsion the name of the shape is trigonal pyramid.

Re: Question on Atomic Spectrum Post Assessment

You have the frequency so using E=hv the energy can be found. Then we know its n final-n initial and n final is n=4. So, to find n initial we can plug this into (-hr/n final^2)-(-hr/n initial^2) = energy found above. Then solve for n.
