Is BF3 AB3 type?

Explain why : Both BF3 and NH3 are the molecules of the type AB3 but their dipole moments are not equal.

What is the hybridization of AB3?

Structure of AB3 Structure of AB5
T-shaped Tetrahedral
Linear Trigonal pyramidal

Hybridization of AB3 Hybridization of AB5

What is the the shape molecular geometry of SF4?

trigonal bipyramidal shape
SF4 molecular geometry is see-saw with one pair of valence electrons. The nature of the molecule is polar. These atoms form a trigonal bipyramidal shape. The equatorial fluorine atoms have 102° bond angles instead of the actual 120o angle.

What shape is SBr2?

Sulfur dibromide (SBr2) lewis dot structure, molecular geometry, bond angle, polar or nonpolar

Name of Molecule Sulfur dibromide
Chemical formula SBr2
Molecular geometry of SBr2 Bent
Electron geometry of SBr2 Tetrahedral
Hybridization Sp3

Does I3 have bent geometry?

(5) I3+ has bent geometry because central I atom is bonded to two I-atom and has two lone pairs.

What is the shape of I − 3 I3 − ion?

I3− ion is sp3d-hybridised. Due to the presence of three lone pair of electrons, its geometry becomes linear instead of trigonal bipyramidal.

What is the bond angle of BI3?

Well, it is obvious that BI3 is a nonpolar molecule because each B-I bond is directed at the angle of 120° to each other in a plane, hence, canceling of dipole moment generated along these bonds is very easy.
