wedge and dash

Postby lauraxie2e » Mon Nov 18, 2019 1:58 pm

When do I use wedge and dash to draw models? For example CH4 in class we drew it using wedge and dash, but SF6 we didn't?

The wedge and dash would be used for VSEPR 3D structures of molecules. The wedge would be used to show that the element is sticking forward/coming towards us and the dash would be used to show that the element is pointing away from us/sticking back.
Hope this helps!

The wedge and dash are used to show the VSEPR 3D structures of molecules/molecular geometry.
