Part D. What is the electron geometry of BI3?
Enter the electron geometry of the molecule.
To determine the electron geometry of a compound, one must first draw the Lewis structure. The electron geometry is the three-dimensional arrangement of electron groups around a central atom. Keep in mind, however, that Lewis structures do not necessarily show the correct three-dimensional geometry of that molecule.
