square planar, seesaw

The ones we have gone over in lecture are bent, trigonal pyramidal, see-saw, and square planar.

The shapes with lone pairs are bent, trigonal pyramidal, seesaw, T-shape, linear, square pyramid, and square planar. Some of these names overlap for the basic geometry shapes (ex: both trigonal planar and tetrahedral have bent shapes, but for trigonal planar 1 lone pair creates a bent shape vc tetrahedral where 2 lone pairs create a bent shape).

Bent = 1 or 2 LPs
trigonal pyramidal = 1 LP
linear = when 3 or 4 LPs
See-saw = 1 LP
T shaped = 2 LPs
Square planar = 1 LP
Square pyramidal = 2 LP

Lavelle has gone over bent, trigonal pyramidal, see-saw, and square planar in class
