Resonancy and VSEPR

Postby Dustin Shin 2I » Thu Nov 29, 2018 4:44 am

The textbook discussed briefly about resonancy and how it somehow deals with VSEPR. Does resonnacy matter when determining molecular shape or electron arrangement? If not, should I be worried about this at all for the upcoming test?

Resonancy is not totally important when it comes to molecular shape because it does not matter which lewis structure you consider. Since all of the resonance structures will have the same shape it doesnt matter which one you focus on since single and multiple bonds are counted as one bond
