Problem Details

Give approximate values for the indicated bond angles in the molecule shown.

O has a pair of dots above and below, and is single bonded left to H and right to N.  The N has two dots above and is double bonded right to O, which has a pair of dots above and below.  Bond angle 1 is from the OH bond to the ON bond, and bond angle 2 is from the ON bond to the NO double bond.
