Lone pair locations

Postby keyaluo4C » Sat Dec 08, 2018 11:41 pm

In the lecture guidelines, it says "Explain why lone pairs are more likely to be found in certain locations around a central atom." Is this actually referring to their location or is it just referring to how they affect bond angles?

I would assume their orientation as in bond angles and shape and VSEPR formulas. How they would experience repulsion and orient themselves far apart from each other such as in a square planar shape.
