In today's post, we will discuss VSEPR theory which helps us understand geometry of molecules. First, what does VSEPR stand for? It is Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion theory. Notice the highlight word Repulsion. It is keyword and all you need to grasp this concept is to keep in mind the idea that atoms want to stay as far apart from each other as possible because of repulsion between electrons on them. Let's use these model examples to illustrate how this work. Red spheres represent the central atom and blue ones are connected to it: keeping in mind that blue atoms repel each other, propose optimal geometry for them. Orientation that puts them as far away as possible with same angle between all. In this case, putting them across at 180 o allows for achieving optimal geometry: when there are three atoms around the central unit, optimal angle is 120 o: what do you think it is when there are four atoms connected to the center? If you have never heard of tetrahedral geometry and think it was 90 o, that is fine, we all do when first introduced to this topic. However, tetrahedral geometry is better alignment since the angle between groups is 109. 5 o: each of these geometries that we have discussed has a name: there can be more than four atoms, however, it is never the case for carbon, and that is why we wo get to those since this post is tail toward organic chemistry.

Explain why the HOH Molecule is bent, whereas HBeH Molecule is linear. Placement of two sets of unpaired electrons in water forces bonds to assume tetrahedral arrangement, and the resulting HOH Molecule is bent. Hbeh molecules must have electron pairs as far from one another as possible and are therefore linear. What feature of the Lewis structure can be used to tell IF molecules ' electron - pair geometry and molecular structure will be identical? Space must be provided for each pair of electrons whether they are in bond or are present as lone pairs. Electron - pair geometry considers placement of all electrons. Molecular structures consider only bonding - pair geometry. Why is the H–N–H angle in NH 3 smaller than the H–C–H bond angle in CH 4? Why is the H–N–H angle in {matheq}{NH4+}{endmatheq} identical to the H–C–H bond angle in CH 4? Explain how molecules that contain polar bonds can be nonpolar. As long as polar bonds are compensate, molecule can be nonpolar. As a general rule, MX N Molecules are polar IF there is one or more lone pairs of electrons on M. Nh 3 is an example. There are two molecular structures with lone pairs that are exceptions to this rule. What are they? Predict electron pair geometry and molecular structure of each of the following molecules or ions: SF 6 PCl 5 BeH 2 {matheq}{CH3+}{endmatheq} both electron geometry and molecular structure are octahedral. Both electron geometry and molecular structure are trigonal bipyramid. Both electron geometry and molecular structure are linear. Both electron geometry and molecular structure are trigonal planar. Identify electron pair geometry and molecular structure of each of the following molecules or ions: {matheq}{IF6+}{endmatheq} CF 4 BF 3 {matheq}{SiF5-}{endmatheq} BeCl 2 What are the electron - pair geometry and molecular structure of each of the following molecules or ions?
