Xenon is one of the noble gases, and is generally quite unreactive.in fact,it was long believed that all the noble gases were totally unable to form compounds.It came as quite a surprise,therefore,when it was discovered that some of its compounds could be made.A chemical formula for one of them is,XeF2. 1)Draw its geometric structure and mention the molecular shape. 2)use the Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion(VSEPR) theory to explain the shape in question above. 3)Write down the shape that you would expect from a molecule with a central atom that has three bonding pairs and lone pair of electrons? Also give an example.
