What is the electron pair geometry of H2O?
H2O: 4 electron groups around the central oxygen atom (2 neighboring atoms + 2 lone pairs)
What is the molecular shape of ICl2-?
ICl2-: 5 electron groups around the central iodine atom (2 neighboring atoms + 3 lone pairs) ⇒ AX2E3
Which of the following molecules is nonpolar?
SF6 is octahedral (AX6) ⇒ bond dipoles in SF6 cancel each other ⇒ overall dipole moment of SF6 = 0
Which of the following molecules has a dipole moment?
SO2 is bent (AX2E) ⇒ bond dipoles do not cancel each other ⇒ overall dipole moment of SO2 0
