When we draw the lewis structure for molecules that have 4 or more atoms do we have to show the 3D shape by putting a small triangle and the lines to show that one atom is behind or in front of the central atom?
You would need to do that when drawing a VSEPR, but I think Professor Lavelle also said that when drawing a VSEPR, simply writing/stating what kind of shape the structure is in (ie trigonal planar, linear, etc) will also suffice.
