Analyze each representation of CH4 and determine which effectively represents the 3D or ball-and-stick model
Recall that molecules are 3D objects which means that we can't properly model it using a paper (2D)
Different representations of the methane (CH4) molecule. Structural formulas, perspective drawings, ball-and-stick models, and space-filling models.
Which model, the ball-and-stick or the space-filling, more effectively shows the angles between bonds around a central atom?
