### VSEPR model angles

Do we need to know the specific angles of each shape?

I'm assuming that we will have to know the angles for the test.

Yes I believe he mentioned during lecture that we will need to know the bond angles of each model

I think so

at least be able to figure them out conceptually if asked. 360/3 planes = 120 is how I think of it but make it the avg

Yes but most of it, you should be able to figure out using simple geometry such as linear 180 or trigonal planar (360/3)

Yes, they are always popular test materials.

You should know the bond angles, but you don't necessarily have to memorize them. Understanding the shapes conceptually will allow you to calculate the bond angle.
