🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Harris' class at UF.
1) We’re being asked to determine the shape of F3C−C≡N . The possible molecular shapes are:
If we consider C on the left, to be the central atom and CN as one group, the geometry would then be AC4 tetrahedral.
1. Indicate whether F3C−C≡N is linear, planar, or neither.
c. neither linear nor planar
2. Propose a hybridization scheme for the left-hand atom C.
3. Propose a hybridization scheme for the right-hand atom C.
