Chemistry Honors – Class 39

Seesaw Geometry

Seesaw Geometry


  • Periods A, D – Tuesday, November 19th
  • Period C – Wednesday, November 20th

New Material – VSEPR Geometry

  • VSEPR Theory
    • What do these molecules look like?
    • Electron pairs repel – farthest apart as can be
    • All pairs determine the shape
    • only “name” bonding shape
  • Application
    • See three charts in shared drive
    • determine the geometry of all pairs
    • then focus on bonding
    • examples from homework
  • Practice
    • add to each molecule in the list
    • write the electron geometry and shape for each
    • draw sketch of 3D on each page


  • Complete exercise for each compound
