Chemical Models

molecular model kitThe objective of this experiment are to examine three-dimensional models of several molecules ions and evaluate molecular properties that are consequences of shape.


You will use a molecular model kit to assist your understanding of Lewis structures, formal charges, molecular geometries (electron-pair geometry, molecular shape, bond angles), polarity, and orbital hybridization.
