consider the molecule itself (without looking at the lone pairs), then the molecule is in a “bent” shape (that is the molecular geometry or mg). Please also look at example 10.2 of the class slide for a corrected example. 2) Determine the electron geometry (eg) and molecular geometry (mg) of CO32. A) eg=tetrahedral, mg=tetrahedral B) eg=tetrahedral, mg=trigonal pyramidal C) eg=trigonal planar, mg=bent D) eg=trigonal planar, mg=trigonal planar E) eg=tetrahedral, mg=trigonal planar
3) Determine the electron geometry (eg) and molecular geometry (mg) of CH3+1.
4) Determine the electron geometry (eg) and molecular geometry (mg) of PF5.
