Problem

Give the approximate bond angle for a molecule with an octahedral shape.

a. 109.5°

b. 180°

c. 105°

d. 120°

e. 90°

Solution

Establish the electronic geometries and the related bond angles on it and determine the bond angles for octahedral


We can summarize the electronic geometries and their corresponding bond angles as:
