Predicting the Shapes of Molecules Containing Multiple Bonds

Use Lewis structures and VSEPR theory to predict the correct molecular geometry for H 2 CS . (Carbon is the central atom.)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Using Lewis structure and VSEPR theory, the correct molecular geometry for H2CS is to be predicted.

Concept introduction:

The VSEPR (valence shell electron pair repulsion) theory is helpful in predicting the shapes of molecules from their Lewis structures.

The electron geometries of a molecule are determined on the basis of the total number of electron groups, the number of bonding groups, and the number of lone pairs.

To determine the molecular geometry of a molecule, the Lewis structure is drawn and the electron groups are counted. On the basis of bonding groups, the molecular geometry is predicted.

Explanation of Solution

The Lewis structure of H2CS is as follows:

One double bond is needed to give carbon an octet
