2.57

ALSO YIKES I DON'T SEE THE SOLUTION IN MY MANUAL TO THIS PROBLEM.
The question regards the second carbon that's pi-bonded to the nitrogen, along with a lone pair.
If an atom has two electron-dense regions, and one of them happens to be a lone pair, does that mean the atom is still linear..? I'm hoping so.

Yes, since the molecule has two regions of electron density the electron arrangement would be linear as would the shape.

Yes, the molecule should still be linear.
