Hi! Are "bent" and "angular" synonymous for the same shape? Because in Topic 2E 7th Ed, I was doing some problems where I had to determine the shape of the molecule and was using a VSEPR chart online to help me, but the names from the answers vs chart were different even though the VSEPR formulas were the same.
I disagree with the previous post, they are synonyms but I've only seen bent in the lectures/discussions/homework so I'd just use bent for consistency. It's simpler to remember bent as opposed to "angular" anyway, it seems more accurate to the shape we're talking about.
