Bond angles of compounds with different atoms

Postby Diana_Diep2I » Tue Dec 03, 2019 12:15 am

What would the bond angle of COH3 be? I know that it is a tetrahedral structure, but would the bond angle be any different due to the oxygen atom?

I think this online response answers your question pretty thoroughly; hope it helps!

I'm not sure if it has what I'm asking. I'm asking if having different atoms surrounding the central atom affects the bond angles?
