    Molecular Geometry

    For each molecule, draw the Lewis structure first, then apply the VSEPR model according to the following rules: 1. Count the number of electron pairs around the central atom (both bonding pairs and unshared pairs). Treat double and triple bonds as if they were single bonds. 2. Refer to the table given below to predict the geom

    Common Acids - Differences

    How can you know that HNO3 is nitric acid and HNO2 is nitrous acid? I need to understand this difference between acids.

    Naming Binary Ionic and Molecular Compounds

    I need to write an essay that explains how a given set of names for binary ionic and molecular compounds can be determined. For an example let's pick KF which is potassium flouride. How can that name be found? I also need to discuss the nomenclature and chemical formulas in this essay by distinguishing between them. Wh

    A complete molecular diagram fo C2 2- and determine the bond order.

    The problem to solve is to formulate in which way two carbon atoms are described by using atomic orbitals. First one has to find out the electronic structure of a carbon atom by locating this element in the periodic table. Second step is then to fill the orbitals with the given number of electrons using Hund's rule. The third

    Bonding in coordination chemistry

    Why do square planar geometries occur in d7, d8, and d9 ions with strong field- pi acceptor ligands, except in cases in which ligand geometry requires it?

    Bonding in Co-Ordination chemistry

    How is it possible that [Co(h20)6]3+ will oxidize water but [Co(Nh36]3+ is stable in aqueous solution? Both are mondentate ligands. I thought the proximity of the nitrogens after one has bonded to the cobalt would make it more likely to react, because the entropy would be lowered. They are also both low spin complexes.
