Homework Help: Valence electrons

  1. Oct 21, 2006 #1
    why don't valence and core electrons affect the shape of the molecule?
    why don't double and triple bonds affect the shape of the molecule?

    Double and tripple bonds do affect the shape. Single bonds are 109* double are 120* and tripple bonds are 180*. Bonds clearly effect the molecules shape.
