VSEPR Worksheet - Solutions 1) What is the main idea behind VSEPR theory? The main idea is that electrons don’t like to hang around near each other because they repel each other. As a result, the atoms in a molecule tend to separate as far as they can because their bonds repel each other. 2) For each of the following compounds, determine the bond angles, molecular shapes, and hybridizations for all atoms: a) carbon tetrachloride b) BH 3 c) silicon disulfide d) C 2 H 2 For chemistry help, visit www.chemfiesta.com © 2002 Cavalcade Publishing – All Rights Reserved
