Learn about electron domain geometry before worrying about bond angles. The bond angle is determined by the molecular shape and electronegativity of the moleucle.

ok... ill look into that, thx for the suggestion


edit- looking up domain structure i have found a most usefull site that has answered a few other questions... your right too, that is what i needed
