AXE formulas

Postby taline_n » Mon Nov 19, 2018 1:24 pm

For test 3 will we need to know the VSPER formulas / molecular shapes for compounds with more than 2 electron pairs on the central atom?

It doesn't say in Outline 3, but I think it's best if you familiarize yourself with all VSEPR formulas and the corresponding molecular shapes.

There are numerous charts you can find online for the VSEPR model. I've attached one here:
Hope this helps!
