VSEPR bond angles

Postby saigorijavolu2k » Sun Nov 17, 2019 7:06 pm

How do I determine where each bond angle goes?

The bond angles would be between the 2 bonds at every position in the molecule

Look at the chart for VESPR, it shows you where the angles measured and you should also take account of the planes that the atoms are on.

It's really based on the VSEPR chart of shape and geometry, however the atoms will be farthest apart is how they'll arrange themselves so this determines where bond angles are formed.
