VSEPR Notation

Postby 705170809 » Tue Nov 20, 2018 3:10 pm

In class, we were taught the VSEPR notation to determine the molecular shape, however are we required to learn the VSEPR notation or if we were taught a different way can we use that method? Will VSPER notation be on the test?

I think we will be tested on determining a molecule's VSEPR formula, molecular shape, polarity, and hybridization. I think it would be okay for you to use the other method as long as you provide them with the correct answers that they are looking for.

I believe that VSEPR notation will be on the test because many of the homework problems ask us to write the VSEPR formulas of various species. VSEPR formulas are relatively easy to determine, so knowing both ways (the one taught in class and your own method) definitely won't hurt you!
