Application of VSEPR Theory

Overview:


Valence shell electron pair repulsion (VSEPR) theory is used in chemistry to predict the three-dimensional shapes of molecules from the number of electron pairs surrounding their central atoms. Molecules can have linear, trigonal planar, bent, tetrahedral, trigonal bipyramidal, seesaw, T-shaped, octahedral, square pyramidal or pentagonal bipyramidal geometries.

Learning Objectives:


After completing this module, you will be able to:
- Construct molecules having linear, trigonal planar, bent, tetrahedral, trigonal bipyramidal, seesaw, T-shaped, octahedral, square pyramidal and pentagonal bipyramidal geometries.
- Apply VSEPR theory to predict the three-dimensional shapes of molecules.
