1.Use the Vsepr theory to predict and explain the shape and bond angle of each of the molecules SCI2 and C2CL2.
2.Deduce whether or not each molecule is polar, giving a reason for your answer...Any help please??

SCl2 has a tetrahedral electronic structure (like H2O) and is bent (like H2O). It is polar.
I can hazard a guess for C2Cl2. I never heard of such a molecule. That makes C with an oxidation state of +1. Most unusual.

I CAN'T hazard......

C2Cl2 = dichloroacetylene. Both C's are sp-hybridized. So, what's so unusual about this compound (other than the fact that it stinks and is pyrophoric)?
