Problem: What is the CH3- molecular geometry ?

FREE Expert Solution

We’re being asked to determine molecular geometry around the central atom of each of the given species

The possible electron pair and molecular geometries are:

To do so, we first need to draw a Lewis structure for each compound

For this, we need to do the following steps:

Step 1: Determine the central atom in this molecule.

Step 2: Calculate the total number of valence electrons present.

Step 3: Draw the Lewis structure for the molecule.

Step 4: Determine the molecular geometry of the molecule.
