I'm trying to calculate the angles between the repulsion of electrons. Well, it looks like a vector problem. Basically, can I just think of 360º between each of the individual the XY, XZ, and YZ planes. If I set everything up with generic variables to everything, will they drop out at the end so I can get the separation in degrees in the respective XY, XZ, and YZ planes, then finally taking the arc-cosine of the dot product divided by the norm of the vectors for an overall angle?
