Bond angles for molecules with lone pairs

Postby Rucha Kulkarni 2A » Sun Nov 12, 2017 12:50 pm

So there's a bunch of bond angle values for when molecules have different numbers of lone pairs. Will we be required to know these?

No! I believe in lecture Dr. Lavelle stated that we only need to know that they are less then the 109 degree bond angle if there were no lone pairs.
