1) e domains are identified by looking at the number of non-bonding and bonding pairs with the central atom
molecular geometry is determined by the number of bonds and lone pairs
2) Yes because this way we can identify the angle, which can help us in determining what molecular geometry the compound has.
I think you should explain more on how the attraction between the nuclei and the electrons affect the molecular geometry
Overall I would say this is very clear and concise! Maybe you could talk about which type of bonds has the strongest/weakest repulsion and how this would allow us to estimate the angle.
1) To identified the e domains, you must identified the amount of boding pairs and lone pair, and this can be use to find the molecular geometry.
2) yes, by looking at the position and the angle of the compound, you will be able to identify the amount of bond pair and lone pair.
All good :) your answer is very agreeable
would be good to mention how repulsion and attraction creates bond angles (which is how we can identify)
Electron domain geometry is based on the total number of electron pairs. Molecular domain geometry is the arrangement of atoms and bonding pairs in a molecule.
Debatable: Yes, we can use the VSEPR theory to help determine the geometry. By looking at the attraction and repulsion of electrons, it can help determine the angle, thus the geometry.
I agree, but I think you could be more specific about the "number of electron pairs". For example, bonding and non-bonding, and you can also explain how double and triple bonds still refer to one electron domain. Everything else seems accurate and concise
I agree with your entire answer, although a slight improvement could be writing *how* molecular geometry is identified
1. The electron domain of a covalent compound is identified by the numbers of non-bonding and bonding pairs that the central atom has. Double or single bonds still count as one domain. The molecular domain geometry is measured by the number of lone pairs and the bonding angles of the central atom.
2. Yes, because the specific attractions and repulsions create certain bond angles, which can be then converted into the specific molecular geometry of the covalent compound.
I totally agree with both of your answer, and you reasoning behind both of your answer, i find it very accurate and easy to understand.
It was good that you expanded upon how to identify domains and geometry . I agree with 2.
Good that you included the fact about double and single bonds. I think you should elaborate on how the specific attraction creates the bond angles.
1) The electron domain geometry can be identified by looking at the number of electron domains of the central atom, which include both lone and bonding pairs. The molecular geometry is determined by the number of bonding pairs only in the central atom.
2) Yes, as the molecular geometry is determined by the attraction and repulsion of the electron pairs.
What about the lone pairs in the central atom? Do they not affect the molecular geometry?
1. e domains are derived from counting the electron pairs present around the central atom of a covalent molecule. This includes all lone and bonding pairs. The molecular geometry is dependent on the number and difference between lone and bonding pairs as the repulsion force exerted by a pair depends on whether it is lone or bonded.
2. Yes, the molecular geometry can be approximated by knowing the difference between repulsion forces, i.e. a lone pair will push away 2 bonded pairs making a different molecular geometry if there were 3 bonded pairs instead.
1) the electron domain is identified by the number of non-bonding and bonding pairs of electrons of the central atom. The molecular domain geometry is identified by the number of bonds and lone pairs.
2)Yes, it can be determined by looking at the repulsion between electrons. However, it cannot be determined by the attraction between the outer electrons and the nuclei. The attraction only affects how strongly the covalent compounds are bonded together.
1. Electron domains are identified through the number of atoms that are paired to the central atom (either bonding and/or non-bonding pairs). Molecular geometry is identified through the number of bonds and existence of lone pairs.
2. Yes because with different attractions and repulsions form at specific angles and therefore, we can estimate how many electron domains there would be accordingly
1) Electron domain geometry is found by identifying the number of electron domains in the structure (identifying the non-bonding and bonding pairs), and determining the associated geometry with based on the hybridization. Molecular geometry is found in the same way, but uses the lone pair(s) that will be counted as a electron domains, and the hybridization with lone pairs causes a different molecular geometry from the electron domain geometry
2) Yes because the attraction and repulsion of electrons is responsible for the bond angle and therefore the molecular geometries
You can draw out the compounds using symbols that identify the electrons and from there you can count the amount of electron domains. From looking at the drawing of the compound you can identify which are paired and which are lone paired.
Yes because the shape of the compound changes depending on how many pairs and lone pairs are and the strength of the repulsion various which changes the shape of the compound.
1) The electron domain geometry is found by looking at how many atoms are bonded to the central atom. This alone decides the geometry
the molecule domain geometry is found by looking at the central atom. By seeing how many electron pairs the central atom has, and how many atoms it bonds to, you then know how many non-bonded pairs or bonded pairs it has, which decides the geometry.
2)It can help, as we generally know the angle caused by repulsion between types of electron groups, so we can make a good estimate of the geometry.
1) e domain geometry is determined by the number of e domain(bond pair, lone pair). Molecular geometry is determined by number of lone pair and bond pair as lone pairs repulse other pairs more than bond pairs.
2) Yes because the attraction and repulsion of electrons give a certain angle of a compound in order to minimize the repulsion. Therefore, it shows a geometry of a compound.
1) To determine the electron pairs is dependent on the number of electron bonding pairs, non-bonding and bonding (single, double, triple). Drawing the lewis structure can help with the process of finding the molecular domain geometry, as it will show the number of lone pairs.
2) Yes, because the VSEPR theory helps to identify the angle of the compounds, this shapes the structure and hence, give's it an identity.
Skills based: The electron domain geometry is identified by the number of bonding pairs to the central atom, and the molecular geometry is identified by the number of lone pairs among the boding pairs.
Debatable: No, it cannot be identified just by looking attraction and repulsion of electrons and nucleuses because the number of bonding pairs are needed to find the angle.
