Bond Labeling

Postby Dustin Shin 2I » Wed Nov 28, 2018 4:23 am

Is it important to define which bond angle we are using to define its angle. I can see how important it would be for molecules that have varying bonds but for molecules that have bonds that are the same, does it matter? Sorry if this is a dumb question, but I do not want to make silly mistakes on the test if they can be avoided.

I think for most molecules they will just be looking for the overall types of bond angles (such as 90 degrees, or 120 degrees, or a little less than 120 degress - just as some examples) and not require you to illustrate which specific atoms are bonded in which angles.
