Solution: If these three balloons are all the same size, what angle is formed between the red one and the green one?

Problem

If these three balloons are all the same size, what angle is formed between the red one and the green one?

Three balloons connected end-to-end, forming a triangle shape.

Solution

We have to determine what will be the bond angle between the red and green balloon in the given diagram.


The given diagram can be thought of as a molecule, in which three bond pairs surround a central atom.


The central atom is termed as A and the corner atoms (electron groups) are X. In this case the notation for the given diagram will be AX3.
