I need an answer--molecular/electron geometry

posted by .

Can anyone help me out with the differences between electron geometry and molecular geometry for SCl6?

I think the molecular geometry is octahedral, but I'm not so sure for the electron geometry. Thanks :)

*My earlier post wasn't answered, so I'd appreciate some help please =]

    The molecular geometry is octahedral and you are correct. If you draw the Lewis structure, you will see it has no unpaired electrons on the central atom(S); therefore, the electronic geometry is octahedral, also.
