Valence Bond Theory (Hybridization) Trigonal Bipyramidal electronic arrangement: AB 5 , AB 4 U, AB 3 U 2 , and AB 2 U 3 Some examples of molecules with this geometry are: PF 5 , AsF 5 , PCl 5 , etc. These molecules are examples of central atoms with five bonding pairs of electrons. The electronic and molecular geometries are the same. Molecules are trigonal bipyramidal and nonpolar when all five substituents are the same. If the five substituents are not the same polar molecules can result, AsF 4 Cl is an example. Trigonal Bipyramidal electronic arrangement: AB 5 , AB 4 U, AB 3 U 2 , and AB

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
