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?
2.square planar
3.Trigonal planar
4.Trigonal bipyramidal
5.square planar
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
