Lin (cgl286) – Homework 6 – Lyon – (52370) 2 6. slightly less than 120 Explanation: Cl O b O 006 10.0 points Which of the following molecules is not lin- ear? 1. None of the answers is correct. 2. N 2 3. CO 2 4. O 3 correct 5. Cl 2 Explanation: O O O is bent. 007 10.0 points The molecular formula for phosgene is COCl 2 , with carbon being the central atom. The elec- tronic arrangement is ? and the molecular shape is ? . 1. tetrahedral; tetrahedral 2. trigonal planar; trigonal planar correct 3. trigonal planar; angular 4. trigonal bipyramidal; T-shaped 5. tetrahedral; trigonal planar Explanation: 008 10.0 points Choose the species that is incorrectly matched with electronic geometry about the central atom. 1. ClO 4 : tetrahedral 2. NO 2 : trigonal planar 3. SO 2 3 : pyramidal correct 4. ClO 3 : tetrahedral 5. BrO 4 : tetrahedral Explanation: 009 10.0 points NF 2 has (2, 3, 4) regions of high electron density and (2, 4, 6) bonded electrons. 1. 2; 2 2. 4; 6 3. 3; 6 4. 2; 6 5. 4; 2 6. 3; 4 7. 4; 4 correct 8. 2; 4 9. 3; 2 Explanation: N = 8 × 3 = 25 A = 5 + (7 × 2) + 1 = 20 S = 24 - 20 = 4 First, draw the molecule. The number of regions of HED equals the number of bonds and the number of lone pairs. There are 4 shared, or bonded electrons, giving 2 regions of HED. The 2 F atoms have an octet. This means that 16 of the 20 available electrons are
