Introduction The valence shell electron-pair repulsion (VSEPR) is used to determine shapes and polarities of various molecules. In this experiment, spartan software program was used to confirm the results. Furthermore, a drug was created to interact with a known receptor using the spartan software. Procedure Part A- Learning to use the software. A molecule of ammonia was built using Spartan. The repulsion between electrons was minimized to obtain a favorable structure. The polarity and partial charges of N and H were determined. Observations about bond lengths and bond angles were recorded. This procedure was repeated for SF 4 molecule and its individual atom Part B- Verification of VSEPR Model of CH 3 Cl, PCl 5 and NO3 - A molecule of CH 3 Cl was constructed using Spartan software. The repulsion between electrons was minimized to obtain a favorable structure. The polarity and partial charges of C,H and Cl were determined.
