HW 4.3 - structure of CH2F2

Postby Anna De Schutter - 1A » Mon May 28, 2018 9:22 pm

Hi!

In homework 4.3 we are asked to draw the structure of CH2F2. I was going to draw the Lewis structure the way we did it before (with a 90 degrees angle between each three consecutive atoms), but in the solutions manual, the structure drawn shows on H atom as being in front of the other (with the filled triangle and the striped triangle). Is this the way I should draw structures from here on out? Like show what the molecule looks like in space with the real bond angles?

Thank you!

If I recall, the professor told us we would not have to draw vsepr structures (what your talking about), but we would have to know he names of the shapes and the bond angles.

Oki, thank you! :)
