VESPR formulae

Running AXE type formula for analysis:

A -central atom

X -ligand (atom attached to central atom)

E -lone pair of electrons (pair of electrons that occupy one hybrid orbital)

Hybridization

In the AXnEm (I cannot do subscripts on this so n being the number of X's and m being the number of E's), add the n + m numbers and that should equal x + y + z number in the the sxpydz type ...
