Bond angles and shapes

Postby Martin_Sarafyan_2K » Sat Mar 04, 2017 12:45 pm

When writing the transition state mech, should we include diagonals and straight lines representing the angle of the bond breaking or being created?

The bonds in the transition state, if being created/broken, would be partial bonds which are indicated as dotted lines

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to make studying the molecular shapes fun and engaging? :D
