🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Shepler's class at GT.

Solution: The molecular geometries for H2O and SO2 are bent. The H-O-H bond angle in H2O is about 109°, whereas the bond angle for O-S-O is about 120°. Explain using lewis diagrams why the molecules have the same molecular geometry but different bond angles.
