### Molecular Geometry(p. 232 – 236)

• Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion Theory

• Electron pairs orient themselves in order to minimize repulsive forces

Lone pairs repel more strongly than bonding pairs!!!

A. VSEPR Theory

• Types of e- Pairs

• Bonding pairs – form bonds

• Lone pairs – nonbonding e-

• Total e- pairs– bonding + lone pairs

Bond Angle

A. VSEPR Theory

• Lone pairs reduce the bond angle between atoms

& their bond angles!

B. Determining Molecular Shape

• Draw the Lewis Diagram

• Tally up e- pairs on central atom (bonds + lone pairs)

• double/triple bonds = ONE pair

• Shape is determined by the # of bonding pairs and lone pairs
