-how to predict the bond angles of ions/molecules...how?
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
yeah. it just comes with a bunch of memorization. do a google search for "VSEPR," or otherwise look that topic up in a book.
yeah ive got it now ( both actually) ... more extreem googling
