How does a single electron compare to lone pairs in terms of repulsion? Assuming there was a molecule whose shape was square planar, with a lone pair on one axial position and a single electron on the other axial position, how would the bond angles differ from a molecule with the same shape but another lone pair instead of the single electron?
There would be a slight difference in the angle but this wouldn't be different enough to impact the molecular shape. This difference would be so small it would be negligible but if you are asking conceptually, there must be a difference.
