Results and Discussion: This experiment’s purpose was to determine the shapes and polarities of several molecules using the VSEPR model and a software program. The Spartan program was tested using information from a known set of molecules (ex: ammonia). The measurements taken are recorded in the following table: Molecule Ammonia SF4 CH3C l PCl5 - NO3 Bond Length (Å) 1.012 1.003 (after minimization)
