The molecular shape of carbon dioxide would be linear with a bond angle of 180 degrees since there are 2 regions of electron density with no lone pairs.

It's linear. There are no lone pairs on the central atom and it has 2 areas of electron density (VSEPR formula: AX2).

The molecular geometry of carbon dioxide is linear. This is because there are only two electron density regions: the two double bonds between carbon and each atom.

It is linear as it has 16 valence electrons. The carbon does not have lone pairs and forms double bonds with the oxygens. So it would be AX2.

The molecular shape of carbon dioxide is bent because it has no lone pairs.

The molecular shape of carbon dioxide is linear bc there's no lone pairs and it has 2 domains.

CO2 would have a molecular shape of Linear since it follows the AX2 model which corresponds to a bond angle of 180 degrees.

Molecular shape of carbon dioxide is linear. The central carbon atom is bound to two oxygen atoms, and there are no lone pairs on carbon.

linear since theres lone pairs on opposing sides.
