Bent vs. Angular

Postby Alyssa Pelak 1J » Mon Nov 20, 2017 9:19 am

Do bent and angular mean the same thing? In some online VSEPR charts I have found they are used as synonyms and on some they have been shown as completely different.

Hi! I believe in lecture Dr. Lavelle said that they are synonymous so I don't think you need to know of any differences between bent and angular.

Hope that helps!

There's no difference. Both bent and angular refer to the shape of AX2E or AX2E2 molecules

I don't think there is a difference between bent and angular.
