6 Cards in this Set

  • Front
  • Back
An atom(or group) that lies above or below the trigonal plane of a trigonal bipyramidal molecule, or a similar structural feature in a molecule.
Axial Group
The angle formed by the nuclei of two surrounding atoms with the nucleus of the central atom at the vertex
Bond Angle
A measure of molecular polarity; the magnitude of the partial charges on the ends of a molecule (in coulombs)times the distance between them (in meters).
Dipole Moment
The overall distribution of electronic charge ina molecule, determined by its shape and bond polarities.
Molecular Polarity
The three-dimensional structure defined by the realtive positions of the atomic nuclei in a molecule.
Molecular Shape
A model explaining that the shapes of molecules and ions result from minimizing electron-pair repulsions around a central atom.
Valence-shell electron-pair repulsion (VSEPR) Theory
