NH3 Ammonia

Background Colour:

Sulfur Tetrafluoride

NH3 NH3 polyhedron Ammonia has 8 electrons around the central nitrogen atom. This means there are four electron pairs arranged in a tetrahedral shape. There are three bonding pairs and one lone pair. The resulting shape is a trigonal pyramid with an H-N-H angle of 106.7°.
