We can determine the electron geometry and bond angle using this:
Electron Regions Electronic Geometry Bond Angles
2 linear 180˚
3 trigonal planar 120˚
4 tetrahedral 109.5˚
5 trigonal bipyramidal 90˚, 120˚, and 180˚
6 octahedral 90˚ and 180˚
Completing the given Lewis structure:
N (in C-N-N) is surrounded by:
The atoms of the compound methylhydrazine, CH6N2 which is used as a rocket propellant, are connected as follows:
What do you predict for the ideal values of the C-N-N and H-N-H angles, respectively?
