Expert Answer

Step 1

Molecular geometry is the 3-D representation of the molecule in a space. As the Lewis model is not able to explain the shape of the molecules. In terms of electron density, the bonding electrons as well as lone pair of electrons holds the shape of the molecule. Molecular geometry describes the shape as well as bond angels and bond lengths.

Step 2
