There is electron repulsion present in atoms with lone pairs or bonded pairs. The electron repulsion is strongest between lone pair electrons and the least amount of electron repulsion is present between bonding pairs.
Repulsion occurs between lone pairs and bonding pairs. However, the strength of the repulsions are different: lone pair-lone pair repulsion > lone pair-bonding pair repulsions > bonding pair-bonding pair repulsions.
Yes, since lone pairs are 2 electrons and electrons always repel each other, there will always be electron repulsion in atoms with lone pairs. The lone pair electrons will repel each other, and they will also repel other lone pair or bonding pair electrons.
Yes, there is repulsion between lone pair electrons. There is also repulsion between bonding pair electrons. The strength of these repulsions are different and are as follows: the lone pair-lone pair repulsion is stronger than the lone pair-bonding pair repulsion which is stronger than the bonding pair-bonding pair repulsion.
Electron repulsion will play a part in determine the shape of a molecule because lone pairs repel each other. Also, repulsion strength is greatest in lone-lone pair, then lone-bonding pair, and weakest in bonding-bonding pairs.
Yes! Lone pairs repulsion is the most has the greatest repulsion strength. However there is still repulsion among long bonding pairs, and bonding-bonding pairs, with their strength decreasing in that order.
