Sapling Week 7/8 HW #5

How do you identify the axial and equatorial atoms in a 3-D structure?

Axial atoms are the ones that are 180º apart. Equatorial atoms are the rest of the atoms, or the ones that are planar along the equator of the axial atoms.

Axial atoms are generally 180 degrees apart, and are on the same plane as the central atom. Equatorial atoms will be the other atoms.

The axial atoms lie above and below the plane of a triangle and they form 180 degrees. The rest of the atoms are the equatorial ones.

The axial atoms are in the same plane as the central atom and are 180 degrees apart from each other while the rest of the atoms are equatorial atoms.

The axial atoms are in linear arrangement around the central atom, meaning they are 180 degrees. These atoms would be similar to the North and South Pole, straight up and down in 2D. The equatorial atoms are the other atoms that occupy positions located on the equator of the central atom, or the ones that go in different directions.
