November 28, 2007 Dr. Stevens Gen. Chem. 1 -if n=6 -all equal angles of 90 -name: octahedron/square bipyramid -effect of lone electron pairs on geometries -name only atomic positions -electron pairs not bonded to 2 atoms take up more space -VSEPR: -space needed based on repulsions on electrons -lone pair – lone pair > lone pair – bonding pair > bond pair – bond pair : - : : - X-Y X-Y – X-Z -effect on angles/shape… -subtract 3 from predicted angles for each lone pair or central atom -n=3 framework -if all 3 positions are atoms trigonal planar -if 1 position is a lone pair bent structure (/\) -angle: 117 b/w X-Y -n=4 framework -if all 4 positions are atoms tetrahedron -if 1 position is a lone pair trigonal (mono)pyramid -angle: 106.5 b/w X-Y -if 2 positions are lone pairs (H2O)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
