Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by Melissa on Saturday, October 7, 2006 at 2:31pm.

I'm having difficulty on drawing lewis dot structures for certain compounds and figuring out the molecular shape. I can do the simple ones like IO4- which is tetrahedral...but i'm stumped on ICl4-. When i drew the structure I thought it was octahedral, but my textbook says it's square planar. help?

I'm having similar problems with ICl2-. I put trigonal planar, when it was linear.

Try this and see if it helps. Repost if you still have trouble and tell us, if you can, what is giving you the problem.
