Problem: What is the molecular geometry about nitrogen in CH3NH2?

FREE Expert Solution

We’re being asked to determine the molecular geometry about N group in CH3NH2.


The possible molecular geometries are:




To do so, we first need to draw a Lewis structure.


For this, we need to do the following steps:

Step 1: Determine the central atom in each molecule.

Step 2: Calculate the total number of valence electrons present.

Step 3: Draw the Lewis structure for the molecules.

Step 4: Determine the molecular geometry of the molecule.
