ICL3 bond angles

Postby Kelsey Jug 1J » Sun Oct 30, 2016 2:40 pm

Homework question 4.9 asks for the shape of ICL3 and the ClICl bond angle.

ICL3 is T-shaped, and the solutions manual only lists the slightly less than 90 degree angle, but shouldn't we also note that there's a slightly less than 180 degree angle? Will we have to note both angles on the midterm?

Adding to this question, will we need to know general angles for each shape for the midterm?
