  • Group 1: BeF2, HgCl2, CO2

  • Group 2: AlCl3, SO2, O3

  • Group 3: CH4, OF2, PCl3

  • Group 4: PCl5, SBr2, XeF2

  • Group 5: SF6, ClF5, XeF4

  • In groups, observe the groups attached to the center atom, groups of lone pairs, and groups of atoms. Create a chart and be prepared to come up to the board and enter in your findings

    VSEPR

    • The properties of molecules depend on the bonding atoms as well as the 3-D arrangement of atoms in space

    • VSEPR (Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion)

    • VSEPR theory states that repulsion between the sets of valence-level electrons surrounding an atom causes these sets to be oriented as far apart as possible


    Vsepr2

    VSEPR

    • This assumption that electrons in molecules repel each other accounts for the molecular shapes of each atom

    • You need to learn these so that you can draw out the arrangement of atoms and fully understand their orientation

    • Consider a diatomic molecule such as BF2 that we discussed. What arrangement could be created so that the atoms are the farthest apart?

    • If the molecules are arranged on opposite sides of the central atom they are the farthest apart

    • Let’s go through this video to get a visual of these shapes

    • Now that we have a good idea of the possible shapes, let’s work through this tutorial for further practice with these three-dimensional shapes and more clearly visualize the shapes

    • Make sure to explore all parts of the website and take notes. These will help you be able to draw and visualize many different molecules
