Angle sizes
« on: April 02, 2005, 01:52:37 PM »
How do you determine angle sizes.  I believe it has something to do with lone pairs.
The professor asked us to give angle sizes for the following structures.  

N H3 - the angle between two of the hydrogens

CH3 O CH2 CH3 - the angle between the first CH3 and CH2

CH3 O H - the angle between CH3 and H

How do you know just by looking at them what the angle is?

You need to know what shape the molecule makes. Check your book, it should be in there.

Most Common Suggestions I Make on the Forums.
1. Start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.
3. Forum Supports LaTex
