VSEPR Formula

Postby Bijan Mehdizadeh 1B » Tue Nov 13, 2018 6:26 pm

Have we learned about VSEPR formulas yet? If we have, how would you find them, like in 7th edit 2E13?

And how would you calculate the bond lengths for 2E 13?

We have kind of gone over the general VSEPR concept, but I do not think we have looked over all the shapes and their bond angles in class yet. For 2E.13, I would just find the number of bonds and lone pairs and then determine the shape and bond angle with that information through figure 2E.1 or any of the other figures for more detail.

In the VSEPR formulas, "A" stands for a central atom, "X" for an attached atom, and "E" for a lone pair.
