Which of the following species has tetrahedral geometry?
D. H3 O+
The shape of all the compounds can be calculated from hybridization, which can be determined by the application of formula:
H = number of orbitals involved in hybridization
V= valence electrons of a central atom
M= number of monovalent atoms linked with the central atom
C = charge on the cation
A = charge on the anion
Thus, the shape of all molecules are
BH-4 is tetrahedral, NH-2 is V-shape, CO32- is triangular planar and H3 O+ is pyramidal.
