Unformatted text preview: molecular geometry seesaw bond angles 180 and 90 and 120 4. (18 pts) Identify the molecular geometry about the central carbon atom AND identify if the molecule is polar or nonpolar . (In the first three, carbon is the central atom.) Dr. Eng will give you the molecular formula at a cost of 1 pt per compound. Compound Molecular Geometry Polar or Nonpolar carbonate anion, CO 3 2 trigonal planar nonpolar thiocyanate ion, SCN linear polar dimethylchloride, CH 2 Cl 2 tetrahedral polar sulfur tetrachloride seesaw polar xenon tetrafluoride square-planar nonpolar chlorine dioxide bent polar 3 pts for molecular geometry, 1 point for correct molecular polarity C N-S...
