what does VSEPR stand for? VSEPR stands for valence shell electron pair repulsion model

what does VSEPR deal with? Its a complicated way of saying that pairs of electrons want to repel each as far as they can
how many bonding pairs do trigonal planar have? 3 bonding pairs, 0 lone pairs
how many bonding pairs do tetrahedral planar have? 4 bonding pairs
what shape does ammonia form? trigonal pyramidal
why does the hydrogen atoms in water form a bent shape instead of a straight line? the unpaired electrons tend to push then away
what shape does CCl4 form? tetrahedral
what shape does CHClBrF form? tetrahedral
2 electron pairs in the valence electrons around a central atom will be arranged? linearly e.g BeCl2 or CO2 and the bond angle will be 180 degrees
3 electrons in the valence electrons around a central atom will be arranged in? a trigonal planar e.g BF3 or CH2O
4 electrons in the valence electrons around a central atom will be arranged in? a tetrahedral structure
5 electrons in the valence electrons around a central atom will be arranged in? a trigonal bipyramid
How to Determine VSEPR model 1-Draw the structure of the molecule in a lewis structure. 2-Determine the number of electron pairs that surround the central carbon. 3-Give the geometry in terms of the bonding pairs and electron pair geometry.
