VSEPR THEORY Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion Theory

Jf-- Assumptions ~

1. Molecules take the shape that produces the strongest attractions and weakest repulsions. This is the lowest potential energy. 2. Only count valence electrons. 3. Focus on the central atom. 4. Electron pairs move as far apart as possible. 5. Double bonds act the same as single bonds. 6. Unshared pairs produce greater repulsion than shared pairs. l(
