Predicting VSEPR Structure 1. Draw the best Lewis structure. Use expanded shell if necessary. 2. Consider both bonding and lone pairs to get the number of electron domains. 3. Put pairs as far apart as possible. 4. Put lone pairs in positions with the most space. 5. Determine the positions of the atoms from the way the bonded pairs are shared. 6. Determine the shape of the molecule by considering the lone pairs invisible.
