Answer to Question #48222 in Inorganic Chemistry for Eddieddy

Question #48222
How many charge clouds are there around the central atom in molecules that have the following geometry?
1.seesaw
2.square planar
3.Trigonal planar
4.Trigonal bipyramidal
5.square planar
6.T-shaped
7.Linear
Expert's answer
The numbers of charge clouds include bonding and nonbonding electrons that surround the central ion. This can be seen using VSEPR theory.
A = Central atom; B = Bonded atom; E = nonbonding electrons.

1. Seesaw - AB4E - 5 charge clouds
2. Square Planar - AB4E2 - 6 charge clouds
3. Trigonal planar - AB3 - 3 charge clouds
4. Trigonal bipyramidal - AB5 - 5 charge clouds
5. T-shaped - AB3E2 - 5 charge clouds
6. Linear - AB2 - 2 charge clouds and AB2E3 - 5 charge clouds
