Besides, just memorizing the VSEPR chart of shapes and angles, does anyone have a useful or intuitive way of remembering all this information?
Square Planar: 4 bonds in x-plane with a p orbital in y plane or 6 bonds to the same atom (From an atom with an expanded valence shell)There was a question on my mcat a few years ago, asking about the molecular shape.
The answer was apparently square planar, a shape i never even heard of before.
Got that wrong on the real mcat
