Molecular Geometry and Polarity

A | B |
---|---|

What is the shape and polarity of O2? | linear, nonpolar |

What is the shape and polarity of PH3? | trigonal pyramidal, nonpolar |

What is the shape and polarity of HClO? | bent, polar |

What is the shape and polarity of N2? | linear, nonpolar |

Secondly, what is the bond angle of n2? The **bond** length is 1.09 Angstroms and the **angle** is 180 degrees.

Similarly, it is asked, what is the molecular geometry of n2?

Therefore, the **molecular geometry** for this **molecule** will be linear, with a bond angle of about 180∘ .

Is nitrogen gas a linear molecule?

**Nitrogen** is a **linear molecule**. Every **molecule** that is made of two atoms has **linear** shape.
