You would expect a square planar for XeF4.

The molecular shape of XeF4, or xenon tetrafluoride, is square planar. Its molecules are located in a square's corners around an atom in the center in a single place.

XeF4 is the formula for Xenon tetrafluoride.

Yes, XeF4, or xenon tetrafluoride, has a Lewis structure.


The Compound XeF4 has 4 sigma bonds

The compound with formula XeF4 is named "xenon tetrafluoride".

XeF4 has a square planar molecular shape, so all the bond are in the equatorial position. This means they are all on the same plane. The two lone pairs are in the axial positions.The bond angles are therefore all 90 degrees.

No it is not a tetrahedral!

The electronic shape is trigonal planar.The molecular shape is bent/angular.

This compound has covalent bonds.

Shape consistency is the average shape of something. For instance, kidneys are known to be bean shaped, so we expect all kidneys to consistently be that shape.

Generally you would expect it be a tetrahedron - although if you could get them to all lie in the same plane it would be a quadrilateral.

The central atom undergoes sp3d2 hybridization.

nonpolar. the geometry lends itself to that answer.

no it does not follow octet rule

I would expect respect. I would want them to listen to me and do what i say.

they would expect to receive everything. :)

Of course not. You would not expect a one year old to have any conception of perspective, color composition, shape and size etc.
