Double bonds

Postby Andrew Sun 1I » Mon Nov 19, 2018 11:20 am

Is there a way to dictate double bonds in our VSEPR drawings? If we have to draw in lone pairs, is there anything else we need to do as well to closer match the elements depicted by lewis structures?

For Vespr its more about orientation of the bonds than the type so I don't think there is a way to dictate double bonds. When you draw in lone pairs just show an electron cloud.

VSEPR doesn't take into account the number of bonds between atoms because it doesn't affect the shape of the structure.

Double bonds do not affect VSEPR structures. Just know that double bonds are shorter than single bonds and are classified as pi bonds

double bonds do not affect the vsepr model because they are thought of as single regions of electron density and for lone pairs you draw an electron cloud

You don't need to depict double bonds in VSEPR diagrams. VSEPR is more concerned with atom arrangement around the central atom.

Double bonds are seen as single bonds when you use the VESPR model, double bonds do not affect the VESPR model.

VSEPR only takes into account the number of regions of electron density, not the number of bonds a particular atom has bonded to it. Therefore, the double bonds would not be any different than a single or triple bond

VSEPR does not take in account what type of bond a bond is. In this sense, a single bond affects VSEPR in the same way as a double bond and triple bond and so on. For VSEPR, a bond is a bond.
