## What is the expected geometry of ClF5?

The molecular geometry of ClF5 is square pyramidal.

## What is the electron geometry of ClF5 ClF 5?

Electron groups include lone pairs and atoms around the central atom. There are 5 atoms and 1 lone pair or a total of 6 electrons around the central atom, Cl. This corresponds to AX_{6} or octahedral. The electron geometry of ClF_{5} is AX_{6} or octahedral.

## What are the approximate bond angles in ClF5?

The ideal angles of an octahedral are 90° and 180°C. This means the bond angles of ClF_{5} are 90° and 180°C.

## Is ClF5 a geometry?

As per the VSEPR theory (valence shell electron pair repulsion theory), the shape of a ClF5 molecule is square pyramidal.

## What is the molecular and electronic geometry classification of ClF5?

ClF5 molecule has an AX5E1 VSEPR notation. Therefore, the shape is square pyramidal and we have an asymmetrical arrangement.

## What is the point group of ClF5?

Question: Inorganic Chemistry EXPERTS only The molecule ClF5 has a C4V point group and square pyramid shape.

## How many lone pairs are in ClF5?

The number of lone pairs of electrons present on chlorine in ClF_{5} is 1.

## How many electron groups are around CL in ClF5?

The central chlorine (Cl) atom contains 6 electron groups.

## What is the the shape molecular geometry of PCl5?

The shape of the PCl5 molecule is Trigonal bipyramidal. Its hybridization is SP3D.

## What is the bond angle for CL?

The bond angle for Cl—S—Cl is expected to be <109.5° according to VSEPR theory (however it is actually 111°). We would expect the bond angle for O—S—O to be larger than the angle for Cl—S—Cl and for Cl—S—O. The O—S—O bond angle is predicted to be >109.5° (and the actual bond angle is 120°).
