Flashcards: VSEPR Geometries

Postby Shreyesi Srivastava 2D » Wed Dec 10, 2014 12:10 am

I made a quick set of flashcards to study VSEPR geometries. It has the name and degrees on one side and the description with a picture on the other side. For example it says 2 bonds and 0 lone pairs, AX2. Here is the link if you want to study it:

Hope this helps!

Hey Shreyesi!

Just a quick note, on the 3rd and 6th flashcards (bent/angular) the VSEPR formula is incorrect. Instead of AX3E1/AX4E2 it should be AX2E1 (ex. for SnCl2) or AX2E2 (ex. for H2O).

Also, the 5th flashcard (trigonal pyramidal) should be AX3E1 (ex. for NH3), not AX4E1.

I think to clarify (instead of just going through and correcting them lol): the A refers to the central atom, while the X refers to the amount of atoms bonded (do not include lone pairs), and the E refers to the amount of lone pairs (and only those). Hope that makes sense.

PS but thanks for flashcards/review!!

Oh right! Thanks for letting me know- I'll fix them also!
