Molecule Shapes: Basics

Molecule Shapes: Basics simulation

Topics

  • Molecular Geometry
  • Bonds
  • VSEPR
  • Bond angle
  • Molecules

Sample Learning Goals

  • Recognize that molecule shape is due to repulsions between atoms.
  • Recognize that bonds are not fixed in place, but can rotate around in response to repulsions.
