Shapes with different types of bonds

Postby Eli Esagoff_1I » Sat May 26, 2018 12:28 pm

I know that the shapes are still the same when you have single, double or triple bonds, but do the bond angles change when the types of bonds are different?

Yes, I believe that the bond angles will change, due to the repulsive force of electrons.

Bond angles will change because double and triple bonds have higher electron concentrations compared to single bonds which leads to electron repulsion, thus affecting the angles.

Yes, bond angles would change, because of electron repulsion :)
