It's mentioned in the textbook in the VSEPR chapter, but I don't recall Lavelle ever going over that model in class.
I was also confused on this because it was in the textbook but not mentioned in class. Just to be on the safe side, I think we should know what pentagonal bipyramidal is incase it comes up on the test or final!
I do not think that this is one of the main ones that we need to know. I am not 100% sure tho so dont go by my word completely just to be safe.
Based off the common vsper charts that I have viewed I would say no but it never hurts to know anyway!
After asking my TA and also taking the test, I can confidently say that no, we won't need to know it. Hope this helps!
I don't think you need to know pentagonal bipyramid because its not THAT common, but its nice to know more VSEPR shapes!
I think it would be good to know for the future, regardless if we need to know it now.
