Step 1

The action that leaves an object looking the same after it has been carried out is called as symmetry operation.

Ex: Consider a water molecule and rotate it by 180° about an axis passing through the central O atom and it will look the same as before.

Each symmetry operation has a corresponding symmetry element, which is the axis, plane, line or point with res...
