Unformatted text preview: AB 3 U Species (One Lone Pair of Electrons on A) Valence Bond Theory (Hybridization) Tetrahedral electronic arrangement: AB 2 U 2 Species (Two Lone Pairs of Electrons on A) Some examples of molecules with this geometry are: – H 2 O, OF 2 , H 2 S These molecules are our first examples of central atoms with two lone pairs of electrons. – Thus, the electronic and molecular geometries are different. – Both substituents are the same but molecule is polar. Molecules are angular, bent, or V-shaped and polar....
