In this lecture you will learn about the Shape of Molecules and Hybridization. Professor Goldwhite will first cover VSEPR (Valence Shell Electron pair Repulsion) before Counting Electron Sets with several examples. Then begin the Geometry of 2 sets (Linear) and 3 sets (Trigonal and Planar) before 4 sets (Tetrahedral). 5 sets (Tringonal Bipyramid) and 6 sets (Octahedron) are next before you cover Hybridization and Hybrid Orbitals first described by Linus Pauling. Lastly are Orbital Phases with Wave Function Phases, Sigma Bonds, and Pi Bonds.
