Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion

H2O Water

Background Colour:

Sulfur Tetrafluoride

SF6 polyhedron Water Water has 8 electrons around the central oxygen atom. This means there are four electron pairs arranged in a tetrahedral shape. There are two bonding pairs and two lone pairs. ClF3 PF5 polyhedron The resulting shape is bent with an H-O-H angle of 104.5°.
