Answer to Question #162327 in General Chemistry for Teeeeeeeeeera

Question #162327

According to the VSEPR model, electron pairs in the valence shell of an atom define regions of electron density that repel each other. How many regions of electron density are there around the central Sb atom in SbF3? --------------


What is the geometry defined by the electron-pairs around the Sb atom in SbF3?---------------


There is/are  unshared pair(s) around the central Sb atom, so the geometry of the SbF3 molecule is predicted to be ---------------------


Please note that "geometry" refers to the molecular or ionic geometry.
