Problem: Part B. What is the molecular geometry of a molecule with 4 outer atoms and 2 lone pairs on the central atom?Enter the molecular geometry of the molecule. The molecular geometry of a molecule describes the three-dimensional shape of just the atoms. This is in contrast to the electron geometry, which describes the shape of all electron clouds. The number of electron clouds determines the electron geometry.
