Molecular Geometry :

The properties of molecules depend not only on the type of bonding but also on molecular geometry or the shape of the molecule.
There are two theories used to predict molecular geometry: VSEPR theory (we will discuss) and hybridization (we will not discuss) Molecular Geometry

VSEPR Theory :

VSEPR – Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion
Theory is used to predict the shape of molecules.
This theory is based on the idea that pairs of electrons surrounding an atom repel each other causing the electron pairs to be as far apart from each other as possible. VSEPR Theory

VSEPR Theory :

The Lewis structure is used to determine the VSEPR model of the molecule.
The following symbols are used for the VSEPR model VSEPR Theory Symbols
