  • chemistry -

    what's abn mean?

  • chemistry -

    its the ABn molecules, which is related to VSPER

  • chemistry -

    I guess A is one atom, B is another atom, what's n. Perhaps the number of B atoms? Or is that supposed to stand for the number of unpaired electrons?

  • chemistry -

    2 is linear. 3 is trigonal. 4 is tetrahedral. 5 is trigonal bipyramidal. And 6 is octahedral.

  • chemistry -

    A is the central atom and B is an atom bonded to the central atom. n is the number of B atoms.
