Virtual Chemistry Experiments

Molecular Geometry


Topic Concepts Experiment
VSEPR Model Principles and implementation of the Valence-Shell Electron-Pair Repulsion Model are explained. Examples of the basic geometries are shown.
Deviations from Ideal Geometries Molecules with geometries that do not conform with the ideal VSEPR Model bond angles are discussed. Examples of molecular geometries are shown.
VSEPR Model Exercises   Individuals may test their ability to predict the shape of molecules.

All of the Molecular Geometry Virtual Chemistry Experiments require Java3D. If an applet on a page is not visible, consult the Java3D FAQ.
