Bond Angles for Seesaw Shape

Postby Ariel Davydov 1C » Sun Nov 17, 2019 12:09 pm

For seesaw shaped molecules, would the angles be less than 120 and less than 90 degrees, or flat out 120 and 90 degrees? I keep seeing different answers everywhere.

I believe they are just 120 and 90.

Also the axial bond angle remains to be 180 degrees, despite the lone pair.
