The three-dimensional shape of a molecule depends on the number of bonded atoms and lone pairs around the central atom. Because like charges repel, the molecule adopts a shape that allows the bonded atoms and lone pairs to be as far apart as possible. Very often, a two-dimensional dot structure does not accurately represent what the molecule would look like in three dimensions.Total number of
