All the bond to bond angles should be 90 degrees because the lone pair to bond angle repulsion is stronger than the bond to bond repulsion. So the lone pair should repeal all the bond electrons away more stronger, resulting in all the bond to bond angles decreasing to less than 90.
I never really thought about this until now, but why wouldn't the 180 degrees be less than 180 degrees? I know that a certain part of the figure is linear, but does that mean that the lone pairs field of repulsion cannot reach the bonds that make up the liner aspect of the model?
