The VSEPR model can predict the structure of nearly any molecule or polyatomic ion in which the central atom is a nonmetal, as well as the structures of many molecules and polyatomic ions with a central metal atom.
Steps to Apply the VSEPR Model:
Draw the Lewis Structure of XeF2:
Does the VSEPR theory predict that XeF 2 is linear?
