Molecular Shape

Postby Dustin Shin 2I » Thu Nov 29, 2018 4:28 am

Are all of the different molecular shapes going to be given to us in a chart or is it something we are expected to memorize for the upcoming test?

I dont think there will be a chart provided since Dr Lavelle said you are expected to memorize the bond angles and shape names. Try memorizing the formulas for molecular shape (e.g AX3E, which correpsonds to trigonal pyramid)
