2E.21 d

Postby Gabriella Bates 2L » Sun Nov 17, 2019 12:55 pm

IN 2E.21, the answer key says that the bond angle of N2H2 is 107 degrees. Are we expected to be able to predict this, or is saying the angle is less than 109.5 degrees sufficient?

I believe Lavelle said in class that we are not expected to predict the exact angle. I am pretty sure that saying "less than 109.5 degrees" is fine.

In lecture he mentioned that we aren't expected to know the value of the actual angle and that we should just be able to determine that it would be less than 109.5 degrees.
