2E.11 Part B T-Shaped

Postby Bailey Giovanoli 1L » Sun Nov 22, 2020 8:47 pm

In part b of 2E.11, the VSEPR formula was AX3E2. I was bewildered by this because it seemed to be an unfamiliar shape. I checked and realized that we never went over this in class. Although we did not go over this in the lecture, should I be expected to know that AX3E2 is considered "T-shaped" as the book put it?

Yes, I think we are expected to know about it. I also think we may have covered it in lecture as it rings a bell to me at least. Maybe in the November 20 lecture?

Okay, thank you! I'll have to go back and rewatch because apparently I didn't take any notes on it.
