I have a question relating VSEPR models with Lewis structures. Knowing what we now know about bonding angles, do we draw Lewis structures also according to bond angles, or does it not matter?

I may be wrong, but I believe that Dr. Lavelle said it is acceptable if we draw Lewis structures without showing the molecular shape as Lewis structures are meant to simply model the bonding and lone pairs.

what is the difference between orbital and molecular geometry?
