The lattice energy can be calculated from other values.
Bond dissociation energies are used to calculate lattice energies for ionic compounds.
The range of lattice energies is 600-4000 kJ/mol, whereas the dissociation bond energies are between 150 and 400 kJ/mol for single bonds.
These are not directly comparable values.
cations and anions pack together in an extended lattice, and lattice energies are associated with many interactions.
The bond dissociation energy is associated with the interaction of two atoms.
By the end of this section, you will be able to: Predict the structures of small molecule using valence shell electron pair repulsion (VSEPR) theory It is important to be able to describe bonds in terms of their distances, angles, and relative arrangements in space.
Bond distances are measured in Angstroms or Picometers.
The angles and bond distances are shown for the H2CO molecule.
The model assumes that the arrangement of the electron pairs in the central atom will maximize the distance between them.
The bonding pairs of electrons are located between the bonds of the atoms.
The positions of the high electron density regions affect the repulsion of these electrons.
The correct arrangement of atoms in a molecule is predicted by the theory.
The theory only considers electron-pair repulsions.
Nuclear-nuclear repulsions and nuclear-electron attractions are two of the interactions that are involved in the final arrangement of atoms.
Predicting the structure of a BeF2 molecule is a simple example of VSEPR theory.
There are only two electron pairs around the central beryllium atom in the Lewis structure of BeF2.
With two bonds and no lone pairs of electrons on the central atom, the bonds are as far apart as possible, and the electrostatic repulsion between these regions of high electron density is reduced to a minimum when they are on opposite sides of the central atom.
The bond angle is 180 degrees.
The BeF2 molecule has two bonds on opposite sides of the Be atom in a linear structure.
This and other electron-pair geometries minimize the repulsions among regions of high electron density.
The basic electron-pair geometries maximize the space around any region of electron density.
When there are no lone electron pairs around the central atom, the electron-pair geometries will be the same as the molecular structures, but they will be different.
The methane molecule, CH4, which is the major component of natural gas, has four bonding pairs of electrons around the central carbon atom.
The ammonia molecule, NH3 has four electron pairs associated with the nitrogen atom, and thus has a tetrahedral electron-pair geometry.
The shape of the molecule is influenced by the lone pair, which is not included in the structure.
The hydrogen atoms are arranged in a way that shows the structure of the methane molecule.
Solid lines represent bonds in the plane of the page, solid wedges represent bonds coming up out of the plane, and dashed lines represent bonds going down into the plane, which are represented by the wedge and dash notation.
The amount of space occupied by different kinds of electron pairs is predicted by the theory.
The amount of space occupied by different regions of electrons is determined by the order of repulsions.
The order of sizes from largest to smallest is: lone pair, triple bond, double bond, and single bond.
There are two single bonds and one double bond in this molecule.
The angle between the single bonds is slightly smaller than the double bonds, but the basic geometry is trigonal with 120deg bond angles.
In the ammonia molecule, the three hydrogen atoms attached to the central nitrogen are arranged in a three-dimensional trigonal pyramid with the nitrogen atom at the apex and the three hydrogen atoms forming the base.
The bond angles in a trigonal pyramid are based on the geometry of the electron pair.
There are slight deviations from the ideal because lone pairs occupy larger regions of space.
The H-N-H bond angles in NH3 are slightly smaller than in a regular tetrahedron because the lone pair-bonding pair repulsion is greater than the bonding pair-bonding pair repulsion.
The structures are the same when there are no lone pairs.
Modifications of the corresponding electron-pair geometry determine the structure of one or more lone pairs.
The first three rows of the table are equivalent to the terminal atom locations.
It doesn't matter if X is replaced with a lone pair or not because the molecule can be changed to convert positions.
In a trigonal bipyramidal electron-pair geometry, lone pairs always occupy equatorial positions because these more spacious positions can more easily accommodate larger lone pairs.
There are three possible arrangements for the three bonds and two lone pairs for the molecule, and the stable structure is the one that puts the lone pairs in equatorial locations.
There are two lone electron pairs and four bonding regions in a central atom.
If more than one arrangement of lone pairs and chemical bonds is possible, choose the one that will minimize repulsions, remembering that lone pairs occupy more space than multiple bonds.
When every lone pair is in an equator position, repulsion is minimized.
When the lone pairs are on opposite sides of the central atom, repulsion is minimized.
The following examples show the use of VSEPR theory to predict the structure of a molecule with no lone pairs of electrons.
The structure is the same as the electron pair geometry.
There are two regions of high electron density around the carbon atom, and each double bond counts as one region.

It is a common example.

The trigonal bipyramidal is the electron-pair geometry.
The structure is linear.
xenon is the most reactive of the noble gases.
The electron-pair geometry is adopted by the six regions.
The five atoms are all in the same plane, so the lone pairs should be on opposite sides of the central atom.
The central atom has three lone pairs and two bonds.
The shape of the molecule is completely described by the structure of the molecule.
The larger molecule has a chain of interior atoms that are connected by a local geometry.
The way these local structures are oriented with respect to each other is an influence on the shape.

As discussed previously, polar covalent bonds connect two atoms with differing electronegativities, leaving one with a partial positive charge and the other with a partial negative charge, as the electrons are pulled toward the more positive atom.
The arrows point along the bond from the less negative atom to the more positive atom.
The partially positive end of the bond has a small plus sign drawn on it.
The length of the arrow is determined by the electronegativity difference between the two atoms.
A molecule may have a separation of charge depending on its structure.
Adding the bond moments in three-dimensional space helps us determine the dipole moment.
There is only one bond for diatomic molecules.
The dipole moment of Homonuclear diatomic molecules is zero.
The geometry must be taken into account when a molecule has more than one bond.
If the bonds in a molecule are arranged in a way that their bond moments don't stay the same, then the molecule is nonpolar.
The bonds in CO2 are polar, but the molecule as a whole is non polar.
The CO2 molecule is linear with polar C-O bonds on the opposite side of the carbon atom.
The bond moments are pointed in different directions.
The Lewis structure shows that there are two bonds to a central atom, and the electronegativity difference shows that each of these bonds has a nonzero bond moment.
