Transcript of Chemistry: Chapter 7 - Molecular Geometry

Molecular Geometry
Valence Shell Electron Repulsion Theory (VSEPR) -- Electron dense areas repel each other.
Basic Shapes
Orbital Hybridization
When the s and p oribitals morph into new orbitals with identical bonds with equal energies.
Sp3 = 1 s orbital and 3 p orbitals morphed
Sp2 = 1 s orbital and 2 p orbitals morphed
Sp = 1 s and and 1 p orbital morphed
Process: How to figure out the shape
Step 1: Draw the Lewis Dot Structure of the molecule
Step 2: Count the regions of electron density around the central atom
Step 3: Make the basic shape based on the regions around the central atom
4 regions = sp3
3 regions = sp2
2 regions = sp
Step 4: attach the bonded atoms and leave the unbonded pairs
Step 5: Determine the molecular shape based on the bonded atoms not the unbonded pair.
Electron dense areas include: unbonded or lone pairs of electrons, single bonds, double bonds, and triple bonds

Molecular Geometry Prezi Questions - All Students (You should be able to copy and paste these into a document if you look at the text for this prezi.)

Answer these questions as you go through the Prezi. Write the questions first. Turn this in for a grade.

1. What are electron dense regions?

2. What are IMFs? Video 1

3. Molecular geometry is what? Video 1

4. What are the 6 basic shapes? Video 1

5. Honors: What are the advanced shapes of the molecules? Video 1

6. What is the electronic shape? Video 1

7. What is the molecular shape? Video 1

8. How many regions of electron density in a linear molecule, and what is the bond angle? Video 2

9. How many regions of electron density in a trigonal planar molecule, and what is the bond angle? Video 2

10. How many regions of electron density in a tetrahedral molecule, and what is the bond angle? Video 2

11. How many regions around expanded octets? Video 2

12. Honors : How many regions of electron density are there in trigonal by-pyramidal molecules? Video 2

13. Honors: What are the bond angles on the octahedral shaped molecules? How many regions of electron density? Video 2

Notice the bond angle! There are 3 bonds all with 120 as the angle. 3*120 = 360. A circle has 360 degrees.
