11.3: Electronic and Molecular Geometry

Difficulty Level: At Grade Created by: CK-12

Student Behavioral Objectives

  • Given binary formulas and an electronegativity chart, students will identify the most likely bonding type (ionic, covalent, or polar covalent) for each compound.
  • The students will describe a polar covalent bond and explain why it forms.
  • Given binary formulas and an electronegativity chart, students will identify the most likely bonding type (ionic, covalent, or polar covalent) for each compound.
  • The students will draw Lewis structures for simple molecules that violate the octet rule.
  • Given a list of binary compounds, the students will identify those that require electron promotion in the explanation of their bonding.
  • The students will identify the type of hybridization in various molecules.
  • The students will explain the necessity for the concept of hybridized orbitals.
  • The students will state the main postulate in VSEPR theory.
  • The students will identify both the electronic and the molecular geometry for simple binary compounds.
