The Valence-shell electron-pair repulsion (VSEPR) Model is a model that states electron pairs in a molecule will be as far apart from one another as they can be because they repel each other. In a molecule that has two valence shell electron pairs the electrons tend to be on opposite sides of the central atom. If there are three electron pairs ...

Solution Summary

The Valence-shell electron-pair repulsion (VSEPR) Model is a model that states electron pairs in a molecule will be as far apart from one another as they can be because they repel each other. Isomers are defined as compounds that have the same molecular formula, but different structures.
