Lewis structures vs VSEPR

Postby Hadji Yono-Cruz 2L » Wed Nov 28, 2018 3:08 pm

Just to be clear, when we draw lewis structures we draw the electrons of the atoms, but when we draw the VSEPR model we do not include the electrons? We only include the shared electrons?

For VSEPR since the central atom is the "important atom" we only focus on the shared electron it has with the other atoms. Because of this it is not necessary to dram the valence electrons of the other atoms.
