Adding a one pair Pursmes me exisring aroms far fren SCIF 2. Is the effect of adding bonded atoms and lone pairs to the central atom similar? Explain why this could be the case. arr similar because m born Push me exi rang mer We can think of bond or a lone pair of electrons as a “domain” of electrons. Single bonds, double bonds, and triple bonds each count as one domain. 3. How do the electrons in bonds (bonding domains) differ from lone pairs (non-bonding domains)?

Can you force the atoms into new configurations by pushing atoms around? What does this suggest about the configuration ofatoms in real molecules? 6. What is the difference between Electron Geometry and Molecule Geometry? 7. In one or two grammatically correct sentences, write a definition for the term Molecule Geometry. MOLECULE SHAPES
