Problem: Use VSEPR to predict the geometry (including bond angles) about each interior atom of methyl azide (CH3N3), and make a sketch of the molecule. Would you expect the bond angle between the two interior nitrogen atoms to be the same or different? Would you expect the two nitrogen-nitrogen bond lengths to be the same or different?Determine the electron geometry about each interior atom for all resonance structures.
