Trigonal Bypyramidal

Postby Jessica Helfond 2F » Tue Nov 13, 2018 2:37 pm

Could someone explain the bond angles in the trigonal bypyramidal shape? Specifically, how/where there are 120 degree angles?

I believe there are five bonds around the central atom and three of them are along the equator with 120 degree angles and the other two are at the axis with 90 degree angles i'm pretty sure.
