🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Delgado's class at FIU.
Butadiene, C4H6, is a planar molecule that has the following carbon-carbon bond lengths:
Predict the bond angles around each of the carbon atoms.
We’re being asked to identify the bond angle around each carbon atom in butadiene (C4H6). We will determine the bond angles using the following steps::
Step 1: Determine the number of electron groups around the indicated atom.
Step 2: 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˚
