How do factors like atomic radii determine the bond angles in the VSEPR model?

Atomic radius only affects bond length. For VSEPR, you don't need to worry about atomic radius, just look at the areas of electron density.

The areas of electron density and lone pairs affect bond angles while atomic radius affects the bond length.

What factors do determine bond angles?

The number of bonded electron pairs and the number of lone electron pairs influences the shape of the molecule, and thus, the bond angles.
