7th edition 2D.19

Postby bonnie_schmitz_1F » Thu Nov 29, 2018 9:06 pm

I'm very confused on this problem! I thought I just added the covalent radii of the nitrogen atoms but the solutions manual says something else. Can anyone help me understand how to solve a problem like this?

In this problem, you simply use table 2.11 to add the covalent radii of the 2 different elements that make up a molecule.
For example, part a) C= 77pm + F=58pm = 135 pm.
It has nothing to do with Nitrogen for this problem.

Yes thank you! Sorry I was reading part of 2D.19 then I looked at 2D.20 to get the part about the nitrogens!
