The Professor mentioned it in class..... but what is it exactly that makes the shape become bent when the lone pair is added to the top of the central atom? Is it the electron repulsion... and if so repulsion with the other bonds.. or?
Remember electons are there as lone pairs or in bonds. Electrons are charged so they prefer to be as far away from each other. So they will arrange themselves in a way such that all are as far away as possible from each other. Then consider the atom connections from the molecular shape.
