Part of the topics say: "Explain why lone pairs are more likely to found in certain locations around a central atom and how and why they affect the bond angles in a molecule, cation, or anion." Can someone please explain this specific topic please? Also, what is it called when something has more than one lone pair?
Lone pairs reduce bonding angles because they take up more space, resulting from their higher electron-electron repulsion, but I'm not exactly sure what you mean by something that has more than one pair having a specific name.
