    would that come up on the exam ?
    There could always be the possibility of it appearing, but quite unlikely really.

    One thing i do not understand is that SF6 has bond angles of 90 degrees. could someone please explain why that is?

    I'm not sure why really, just that is forms 4 bonds in the same plane and 2 vertically opposite eachother which gives the bond angle of 90 degrees between each bond.

    because if the angle was any smaller the electrons wouldn't be as far apart as possible, and the same for if the angle was bigger - as it would mean the electron is getting closer to a different electron (the angle increases on one side and decreases on the other). Remember electrons repel each other as much as possible. Hope this helps

    Imagine the molecule as a 3D shape and not 2D.

    In this way you can see that the molecule has 90 degree bond angle between each atom.

    Bond angles and shapes are fine for the most part, but i was doing a paper that was about hydrazine and they asked for the bond angle of "N-H-N" or something like that... thats when it got confusing. Also in the january 2013 paper a similar question came up with the "O-B-O" bond angle or whatever.

    Explain the decrease in atomic radius across each period?
    Predict and explain whether a sodium ion is larger or smaller than a sodium atom.
    Why does the boiling point increase from Sodium to Aluminium?

    I use a nifty mneumonic which is weird- SSPIRD - similar shielding,protons increase,radii decreases and FIE increases - down groups I just say radius,sheilding,shells and protons increases but FIE decreases
