**Molecular Geometry and Bonding Theory**

Chapter 9 AP Chemistry

2
Molecular Geometry Molecular Geometry- general shape of a molecule as determined by the relative position of the nuclei. The geometry and size of a molecule helps to determine it’s chemical behavior. VSEPR- Valence-Shell-Electron-Pair-Repulsion model- predicts geometry based upon e’s around the central atom.

3
**Principles of the VSEPR theory**

Electrons are kept as far away from one another as possible – minimizing e pair repulsions Electron pairs are considered as being bonding or non-bonding (lone pairs) A multiple bond counts as a single bonding pair Electron pair geometry is described by the regions of e’s around the central atom Molecular geometry is a consequence of electron pair geometry.

4
**Predicting Structures VSEPR**

Derive the Lewis Structure to the form AXmEn A = central atom X = atoms bonded to the central atom E = lone pairs of e’s on the central atom M = # of bonded atoms N = # of lone pairs

28
Bond Angles Non-bonding pairs of e’s take up more space (att. by one nucli) than bonded e pairs Double and triple bonds take up more space than single bonds (more e’s) Volume occupied lone pairs > triple bonds > double bonds > single bonds

29
Forces Non-bonding pairs exert repulsive forces on adjacent e pairs and compress angles Multiple bonds also exert repulsive forces and compress angles
