What does the VSEPR theory redict?
The geometry of molecules. In this theory the valence electron pairs around an atom repel one another.
The VSEPR theory predicts the shape of a molecule.
The scope of VSEPR theory is to predict the geometry of molecules.
no, not all molecules obey the VSEPR theory, there is an exeption considered for the SIO2 molecules which obeys not the VSEPR theory
VSEPR is the acronym for valence shell electron pairs repulsion.
VSEPR predict the geometry of a chemical molecule.
According the VSEPR theory of molecular geometry, the geometry of SCl2 would be the same as H2O which is a bent angle

The shape of molecules
A pyramidal molecule
How atoms are arranged in a molecule.
VSEPR theory explains the geometry around a central atom in terms of repulsion beween pairs of electrons, pairs involved in bonding and lone pairs.
VSEPR is valence spin electron pair repulsion, and helps in describing the electron domain geometry and the molecular geometry of a substance.
What is kept as far apart as possible as molecules adjust their shapes according to the VSEPR theory?
According to VSEPR theory, molecules adjust their geometry to keep the electrons in valence shells as far apart from each other as possible.
Valence-shell Electron Pair Repulsion theory
The shape of an individual molecule.
pairs of electrons repel other pairs
ClO3F would be tetrahedral.
"According to VSEPR theory, the repulsion between electron pairs causes molecular shapes to adjust so that the valence-electron pairs stay as far apart as possible" - Prentice hall chemistry
Valence shell electron pair repulsion (VSEPR) theory.
This theory is VSEPR - Valence shell electron pair repulsion.
pairs of electrons repel other pairs of electrons
SiCl4 has tetrahedral geometry as predicted by VSEPR theory.
Probable you think to VSEPR theory.
the vsepr theory ( valance shell electron pair repulsion) is used to determine the shape of the electron domains, and the shape of the molecule itself. from knowing the shape of the molecule, you can determine a lot about it. such as polarity and ability to bond with other molecules
The most known theory is VSEPR (Valence Shell Electrons Pair Repulsion).
SiCl2Br2 would take a tetrahedral shape according to the VSEPR theory.
CH3Cl is polar, CH4 is not. You'll have to do your own Lewis structures, and I'm personally a little mystified as to exactly what VSEPR has to do with it (if you were comparing CH4 with NH3 instead, then you'd need VSEPR).
VSEPR relates to electron pair repulsion -and uses this effect to predict molecular geometry. You need to determine the bonding using lewis dot diagrams or some other methodology first before using VSEPR
The major assumption of the VSEPR theory is that in a molecule, the structure is determined by the repelling of electrons amongst each other, automatically defining some molecular geometry. The electron pair count around each atom is referred to as its steric number.
Valence shell electron pair repulsion (VSEPR) theory
Valence shell electron pair repulsion theory, otherwise known as VSEPR theory, is used to predict the geometry of molecules. This is based on the number of electron pairs surrounding their central atoms. This is based on the idea that valence electron pairs surrounding and Adam generally repel each other, so their arrangement is based on the minimizing of said repulsion.
repulsive forces between unshared pairs of electrons
According to the VSEPR theory molecules adjust their shapes to keep which of the following as far apart as possible?
Pairs of valence electrons
a repulsive forces between unshared pairs of electrons
Because two atomic centres can only create a linear molecule.
VSEPR theory would predict a molecular structure that was bent with a bond angle < 120 degrees AX2E.
Ammonia is represented by its symbol NH(3). In drawing its diagram using VSEPR theory, we get a triangular pyramidal shape.
The VSEPR theory, sometimes pronounced 'vesper', stands for Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion. It states that repulsion between the sets of electron bond pairs surrounding an atom in a compound causes these sets to be oriented as far apart as possible, giving the compound a certain shape. "Valence electron pairs will move as far apart from each other as possible."
The model for predicting the shape of a molecule that is based on the repulsion of electrons for each other is called?
Im not for sure, but I believe it would be the VSEPR theory.
