The test should cover everything we've done after the midterm, so the concepts after Focus 2D, including intermolecular forces and VSEPR. From what I understood during yesterday's lecture, we won't be required to actually draw VSEPR models but, rather, we'll have to identify the molecular shape & geometry.
Using the Valence-Shell Electron-Pair Repulsion Model (VSEPR) to determine the shape of inorganic, organic, and small biological molecules, cations, and anions, using bond dipole moments and shape to determine if a molecule is polar or non-polar, using shape and polar or non-polar properties, identifying different intermolecular interactions/forces (H-bonding, dipole-dipole, dispersion), explaining why lone pairs are more likely to be found in certain locations around a central atom and how and why they affect the bond angles in a molecule, cation, or anion, and distinguishing sigma and pi bonds by their shapes, properties, and component orbitals.
