Multiple bonds

Postby MaiaRodriguezChoi3E » Wed Nov 14, 2018 11:03 am

When determining the molecular shape and electron arrangement, should you just treat single and multiple bonds the same? Because that's what I thought the textbook said, but it seemed like my TA was saying something different...

Yes, single, double, and triple bonds are all treated the same. But you do treat lone pairs differently.

Yes, a single/double/triple bond is considered just 1 region of electron density. A lone pair is considered 1 region of electron density as well
