Of2 Molecular Geometry

Have you determined the electronic geometry, molecular geometry and maximum bond angle for each of the following molecules? 3

1 Determine the electronic geometry of each molecule.

2 Determine the molecular geometry of each molecule.

3 Find the ideal bond angle for each molecule.

4 When do you expect deviations from the ideal joint angle?

a) CF4.

(b) NF3.

(c) OF2

(D) H2S

1. They are all tetrahedrals.

2. a is a tetrahedral, b is a triangular pyramid, c and d is a curve.

3. All 109.5 degrees

4. All compounds except CF4 because it has no isolated pair.
