VESPR Theory

Postby Aaron Ang 4H » Wed Nov 28, 2018 11:25 am

Can someone please explain how to predict the position of lone pairs when determining a molecule's molecular shape?

The position of the lone pairs are typically on top of the atom with the lone pairs and they push the other atoms bonded to it down/as far away from the lone pairs as possible.
