Molecular Shape

Postby Lumbini Chandrasekera 1B » Sat Nov 10, 2018 10:32 pm

In a linear shaped structure, if the two atoms on either side of the central atom are of different elements, but have the same number of valence electrons, will a 180 degree angle still be made?

the two atoms on either side do not have to be the same. HCN is linear and is composed of 3 different elements
