We’re being asked to determine the shape of SiF4. The possible molecular shapes are:
Consider the molecule below. Determine the molecular geometry at each of the 2 labeled carbons:
a) C1 = trigonal planar, C2 = bent
b) C1 = tetrahedral, C2 = linear
c) C1 = trigonal planar, C2 = tetrahedral
d) C1 = bent, C2 = trigonal planar
e) C1 = trigonal pyramidal, C2 =see-saw
