So for tetrahedral molecules, you'd place the lone pairs in between the each shared electron pair, but what about a trigonal molecule? I guess I'm confused as to the fact that you're supposed to place lone pairs on opposite ends, but in the book it will show to lone pairs next to each other when its a trigonal molecule.
A molecular structure of trigonal planar shouldn't have any lone pairs. If you're referring to an electronic arrangement that is trigonal planar, then that can either have a molecular structure with three bonded atoms, making it trigonal planar, or two bonded atoms and one lone pair, making it bent, or even two lone pairs and one bonded atom making it linear.
