Bond Angles

Postby Rita Dang 3D » Thu Nov 16, 2017 11:28 pm

When we try to predict or determine bond angles, do we look at the electron distribution instead of the shape (or positions of atoms)?

You look at the shape/position of the angles.

You look at the electron distribution to tell the angles (only if there are lone pairs of electrons). If there isn't, then you go by the molecular formula for the molecule you're looking at.
