Summary of Shapes of Molecules

Neatly organized and easy-to-read, this chart summarizes five different molecular shapes: linear, trigonal planar, tetrahedral, trigonal bipyramidal, and octahedral. It associates shape with electron pairs and atom arrangement, and it lists examples of each. On the bottom of the page you will find a link to a website that animates molecular models. Give this to your chemistry class as a useful reference chart.
