To show how to make sketches of the molecular geometry of atoms in molecules and polyatomic ions. The arrangement of atoms in a molecule or polyatomic ion (that is, its molecular geometry) plays a significant role in determining its properties. This section explains why molecules and polyatomic ions have the geometry that they do, and Sample Study Sheet 12.2: Predicting Molecular Geometry and Table 12.3: Electron Group and Molecular Geometry show you how to predict and sketch these geometries.
