Part A. After familiarizing yourself with the simulation, complete the following table that matches geometries, coordination models (notations), and structural features.

Drag the appropriate labels to their respective targets.

Molecules have predictable geometries that are based on the number of electron groups surrounding the central atom. These molecular geometries are simplified models meant to describe the orientation of the electron domains that surround an atom. When there are no lone pairs of electrons, the geometry is entirely decided by the number of atoms bonded to the central atom.
