A tshaped molecule is a molecule that has 2 lone pairs and 3 bonded atoms. The bond angles would be less than 90 degrees.

T-shape is a molecular geometry that occurs with 3 bonds and 2 lone pairs around the central atom in the molecule

AX3E2 would be a T-shape with bond angles of 90 and 180.

T-Shapes you mention here might refer to trigonal bipyramidal without two equilateral lone pairs. Trigonal bipyramidal and octehedra are the two shapes with 90 degree bond angles, and T-shape can never happen to octehedra because it would be very unstable. Thus, Trigonal bipyramidal without two equilateral lone pairs is the only plausible option by far we covered in this course.

T-shape refers to the shape molecules with 5 regions of electron density with 3 bonding pairs of electrons and 2 lone pairs, or the shape of molecules with 6 regions of electron density with 3 bonding pairs of electrons and 3 lone pairs.

T shaped is when the electron geometry is trigonal bipyrimidal because there are 5 regions of electron density around the CE and the Molecular shape is t-shaped because 3/5 of the regions of electron density are atoms and 2/5 are lone pairs.

You would get a T-shape with the formula AX3E2, so three bonded atoms (two along the y-axis) and one approximately perpendicular to them with two lone pairs.

A t-shaped molecular geometry has 3 ligands attached to a central atom. The bonds form a 90 degrees and the attachments form a t-shape.

T-shape has two lone pairs and 3 bonded pairs; the geometry is trigonal bipyramidal

T shaped molecules have 3 bonded atoms and 2 lone pairs. The 5 regions of electron density have trigonal bipyramidal geometry, and the two lone pairs are placed equatorially to maximize distance; this forms a T shaped molecule.

Are T-shaped molecules all in the same plane? Or are they 3D?

T-shaped molecules have bond angles of 90 degrees. A molecule is T-shaped if there are 3 molecules around the central atom and 2 lone pairs, or if there are 3 molecules around the central atom and 3 lone pairs.

T-shape molecule is AX3E2, indicating that there is a central atom with two axial atoms and one equatorial atom, that together resemble the letter T.
