VSEPR shapes

Postby 605208780 » Sun Nov 17, 2019 10:23 pm

Are the VSEPR shapes that we need to know linear, trigonal planar, tetrahedral, trigonal bypyramidal, and octahedral? Are there any others we should know?

There is also seesaw, bent, trigonal pyramidal, square pyramid, square planar, and t shape. I hope this helps!

Yes, make sure to be able to differentiate between electron arrangement and shape. While those are the only electron density arrangements we need to know, the number of shapes we need to know is indicated above.
