Im very confused to why MgCl2 is a bent shape and not linear. So how would you draw this molecule with the bond angle?I understand that it is polar but then how would I draw the shape in a way to indicate this? Thanks
which does show an image which would suggest that it is bent, although it isnt
I was doing some electronegativity questions and it said that only cl2 was non polar and obviously mgcl2 will be polar but then I thought it would have a linear shape which would not make sense. However I searched online and the first thing that came up said that it has a bent shape but from what lone pair? How do you draw ionic bond angles then?
