Axial Bond Angles

Postby Parth Mungra » Fri Nov 16, 2018 12:01 am

What are axial bond angles and how do they differ from regular bond angles?

Axial bond angles are a unique type of bond angle usually seen in more complicated lewis structures. They are the bond angles involving the atoms on the axis of the molecule at a 90 degree angle to the equatorial plane. An example of an axial bond angle is the one seen in PCl5, which has a trigonal bipyramidal shape and an axial bond angle between the two upright chlorine atoms of 180 degrees.

Do axial bond angles only exist in conjunction with equatorial bond angles?

axial bond angles are angles between atoms that reside on the axis of a molecule
