M Topics Chapter 10 (VSEPR and valence-bond theory) Definitions of “electron arrangement” and “molecular geometry” VSEPR = Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion” model Figure 10.2: the 5 VSEPR electron arrangements Procedure for determining the molecular geometry Figures 10.4 and 10.8: the molecular geometry shapes and names Definition of the polarity of a molecule Determining whether a molecule is polar Definition of a valence bond (overlap of partially filled atomic orbitals) Definition of a sigma ( σ ) bond and a pi ( π ) bond Definition of hybridization and of a hybrid orbital (particularly the sp 3 , sp 2 and sp hybrid types) Figure 10.23: the 5 hybrid types (relate to the 5 VSEPR electron arrangements) Drawing valence orbital diagrams for sp 3 , sp 2 and sp hybrid schemes Understanding the composition of a double bond (1 σ and 1 π bond) and triple bond (1 σ and 2 π bonds).
