trong>Exercise 12.5 Predict the arrangement of electron pairs around the central atom. Then sketch and name the molecular structure for each of the following molecules ions

msp;  a .  NH 4 +                                 d .  H 2 S   b .  SO 4 2                                   e .  ClO 3   c .  NF 3                                       f .  BeF 2

Interpretation Introduction

(a)

Interpretation:

The arrangement of electron pairs around the central atom in the given molecule or ion is to be predicted. The sketch and name of the molecular structure for the given molecule or ion are to be stated.

Concept Introduction:

The geometry of the molecule is determined by electron pairs present around the central atom.

The formula to calculate number of electron pairs in compound is,

Electronpair=bondpair+lonepair

If electron pairs are 2 then the shape of molecule is linear.

Similarly, if electron pairs are 3, then the shape of molecule is trigonal planar.

Explanation

The number of valence electrons in nitrogen is 5 and the number of valence electrons in hydrogen is 1.

Total valence electrons in NH4+ is,

Totalvalenceelectrons=nValenceelectronsinN+nValenceelectronsinHPositivecharge

Where,

  • n is the number of atoms.

Substitute the values of n, valence electrons of N and H in the above expression.

Totalvalenceelectrons=nValenceelectronsinN</
