1. One lone pair - Seesaw shape 2. Two lone pairs - T-shape 3. Three lone pairs – linear The lone pairs occupy equatorial positions because they are 120 o from two bonding pairs and 90 o from the other two bonding pairs. Results in decreased repulsions compared to lone pair in axial position. Trigonal Bipyramidal electronic arrangement: AB 5 , AB 4 U, AB 3 U 2 , and AB 2 U 3 AB 4 U molecules have: 1.1. trigonal bipyramid electronic arrangement 1.2. seesaw shape 1.3. and are
