## How do you find the hybridization of I3?

Another way to find the hybridization of a given molecule is by **taking the help of lone pairs and valence electrons**. Here, the number of lone pairs in the molecule is 3 and the number of atoms sharing valence electrons is 2. Henceforth, 3+2=5, which also determines the same sp3d hybridization. via

## What is the molecular shape of I − 3?

With three nuclei and three lone pairs of electrons, the molecular geometry of I _{3} ^{−} is **linear**. This can be described as a trigonal bipyramid with three equatorial vertices missing. via

## Is I3 a trigonal planar?

I3- has 2 bonds and 3 lone pairs for 5 regions of electron density. Placing that into a **trigonal bipyramidal** structure, the lone pairs go equitorial and the two other I atoms go axial. With the three atoms in a line, the molecule is linear. via

## Does I3 follow octet rule?

Lewis Dot of Triiodide Ion I3- **I does not follow the octet rule**. It will hold more than 8 electrons. Iodine having valence electrons in the 4th energy level, will also have access to the 4d sublevel, thus allowing for more than 8 electrons. via

## Why is I3 sp3d?

The number of lone pairs in this molecule is 3, and the number of atoms sharing valence electrons is 2. Hence, **3+2=5** which also determines sp3d hybridisation. The shape of the molecule I3- is Linear. Due to this one extra electron there 3 lone pairs of electrons and 2 bond pairs making it's steric number 5. via

## What is the Lewis structure of XeF4?

The Lewis structure for XeF4 has **a total of 36 valence electrons**. When we are done adding valence electrons we check each atom to see if it has an octet (full outer shell). We also need to check to make sure we only used the number of available valence electrons we calculated earlier (no more, no less). via

## What is the shape of SF5?

What is the molecular geometry of sf5? | A step by step guide on how to draw the Lewis Dot SF5 structure. The molecular geometry is **square-pramidal** and the bond angles are 90 degrees. via

## What is the formula of hybridisation?

**Hybridization=1/2[V+M-C+A]**

Let us put the values according to the formula. The hybridization number is equal to 7. Now we can say that hybridization is sp^{3}d^{3}. Alternatively, we can also determine the hybridization of I3- by knowing the number of bond pairs and lone pairs. via

## What type of bond is XeF4?

Although the bonds between Xenon and Fluorine atoms are polar, XeF4 is **a nonpolar molecule**. Wondering how? All the Xe-F bonds are in opposition with each other mutually, making the sum of dipole moment zero. As there are four electrons on the Xenon atom, which are localized as nonbonding pairs of electrons. via

## Does I3 have coordinate bond?

I3- Molecular Geometry And Bond Angles

I3- molecular geometry is **linear**. While there are three Iodine atoms, one of the atoms has a negative charge which further gives 3 lone pairs of electrons and 2 bond pairs. The three lone pairs will repel each other and take up equatorial positions. via

## How do you find the lone pair of I3 minus?

The central atom in [{I_3}^ - ] has three lone pairs of electrons and is making two bonds with adjacent iodines. Hence, it has a negative charge on it. Thus, the total number of lone pairs of electrons in the structure of [{I_3}^ - ] is **9**. Hence, the correct answer is 9. via

## Does I3 have a dipole moment?

Here, if we check I3- has a negative charge but also it is symmetrical in molecular geometry with **no resultant dipole moment**. via
