Bent or angular?

Postby Ryan Narisma 4G » Fri Nov 15, 2019 8:01 am

In a previous chemistry I learned the shape "bent" instead of "angular". Is it ok if I name the shape "bent" instead of "angular" on a test or exam?

I think it should be fine either way because bent and angular refer to the same shape.

I think you can also call it V shaped, although that sounds a little informal.
