What do subscripts mean? How is this different from a coefficient in a chemical reaction? Calculate the number of atoms in a molecule. What is a molecular formula? What is a structural formula? What is an empirical formula? How is it related to the molecular formula? Why is an empirical formula important? LRSVDS CH110 Molec. Geometry 1 LRSVDS What is atomic weight? What is molecular weight or formula weight (FW)? How can you calculate FW of a given molecule using the periodic table? Use the molecular weight to convert the mass of a sample into moles of molecules. Use the molecular weight to convert moles into mass of molecules. Convert moles of molecules into number of atoms using Avogadro's number.
CH110 Molec. Geometry 2 Percent Composition, Mass %
Calculate mass percent of an element in a molecule; know the ratio you must use. Convert mass percent to grams, assuming you have 100 g of sample. Given the weight of a sample, use the mass percent to calculate the mass of an element in the sample. Given the mass percent, convert this to number of moles of each element in the sample, assuming 100 g of sample. Empirical and Molecular Formula
Given percentages of elements in a sample, determine the empirical formula using mole ratios. Given the FW of a compound, convert the empirical formula to the molecular formula. Find the integer that relates the two molecular weights (calculated and experimental) Multiply the empirical formula by the integer to get molecular formula
CH110 Molec. Geometry 4 LRSVDS CH110 Molec. Geometry 3 LRSVDS Combustion Analysis
Given the mass of CO2 and H2O produced, find the number of moles of C and moles of H in the original sample. Find the mole ratio of C:H. If another element is present (like O or N), find the moles of that element in the original sample by: Calculating the mass of C and mass of H in the original sample using the number of moles and atomic weight. Subtract the mass of C and the mass of H from the weight of the original sample to get mass of the extra element. Convert mass of the extra element to moles, and find the mole ratio compared to the moles of C and H. Lecture 16: Molecular Geometry

Structural Formulas tell us how atoms are connected to each other Lewis structures tell us where the electrons are shape reactivity Predict the shape of the molecule by counting: 1. 2. Electron pairs ______ each other. Place the electron pairs as far as possible from each other predict the shape of the molecule. Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion Theory (VSEPR)
LRSVDS CH110 Molec. Geometry 7 LRSVDS CH110 Molec. Geometry 8 Electron Domains Electron pairs Electron domains One lone pair = one electron domain One bond (single, double or triple bond) = one electron domain. Electron-Domain Geometries How many electron domains around A?
LRSVDS CH110 Molec. Geometry 9 LRSVDS CH110 Molec. Geometry 10 Electron-Domain Geometries Count the number of __________ in the Lewis structure. The geometry corresponds to that number of electron domains. Molecular Geometries Is the electron-domain geometry always the shape of the molecule? The molecular geometry is defined by the positions of only the atoms in the molecules, not the nonbonding pairs. LRSVDS CH110 Molec. Geometry 11 LRSVDS CH110 Molec. Geometry 12 Molecular Geometries
Some electron domains have more than one molecular geometry. Linear Electron Domain In this domain, there is only one molecular geometry: linear. NOTE: If there are only two atoms in the molecule, the molecule will be linear no matter what the electron domain is. LRSVDS CH110 Molec. Geometry 13 LRSVDS CH110 Molec. Geometry 14 Trigonal Planar Electron Domain Lone Pairs and Bond Angles Nonbonding pairs are physically larger than bonding pairs. Therefore, their repulsions are greater; this tends to _________ bond angles on the other side of the molecule. Two molecular geometries:
Trigonal planar, if all the electron domains are bonding Bent, if one of the domains is a nonbonding (lone) pair.
