Lewis Structures and Molecular Geometry: Models of Covalent Bonding—ChemTopic™ Lab Activity

firewatch

The structure and shape of a molecule influences its physical properties and affects its chemical behavior. Lewis structures and VSEPR theory offer useful models for visualizing the structures of covalent compounds. With the Lewis Structures and Molecular Geometry: Models of Covalent Bonding—ChemTopic™ Lab Activity, practice drawing Lewis structures of molecules and use the structures to predict their molecular geometry.
