What is the molecular shape for both #NF_3# and #XeCl_4#?
Simple VSEPR theory predicts a trigonal pyramid for
The electron pairs, bonding and non-bonding, are arranged around nitrogen in the shape of a tetrahedron. Because we describe molecular geometry on the basis of actual atoms, the geometry of the
On the other hand, around the xenon atom there are 4 bonding pairs, i.e. 4
