Sidebar: An Animated Look at VSEPR Molecules

Print Friendly

Just found this animated video that shows more molecule structures as predicted by VSEPR theory than your textbook does. It includes the shapes of molecules that contain atoms with lone pairs of electrons as well the shapes of those with only full bonds.

It may be easier for you to see the underlying patterns by seeing the full array of potential molecule shapes. Enjoy!
