Molecular Shapes

The book contains all of the different molecular shape names (linear, see-saw, T-shape, ect). Do we have to memorize all of these?

Yes, I believe we do since it was covered in lecture.

I'd assume we need to memorize them all along with whatever electron configuration they go with for test 2.

For the test and final, yes we need to memorize all of them because it'll be likely that we'll be given the more complex ones on the exams like seesaw and t-shaped.

Yes memorize them and know the angles for them because it can give you information on lone pairs and how it affects the degree of the angle.

Yes. It is important to memorize and be able to determine the molecular shape for any given compound.

Yes. There are charts online to help memorize them.
