So we have an mx4e2 structure which is according to vsepr theory an octahedral electronic geometry means it has square planar molecular geometry. Xenon tetrafluoride is a covalent molecule consisting of a central xenon atom.
Xenon xe is a main group 8 noble gas element so it has 8 valence electrons.
Xef4 molecular geometry name. It will share 4 of these valence. Xef4 has an electronic geometry of octahedral making the molecular geometry of xenon tetrafluoride square planar. Xef4 bond angles the bond angles of f xe f are 90 degrees and lone pairs have angles of 180 degrees.
The central atom of xef4 xe has a total of 12 electrons localized in the form of 8 as xe f bonding and 4 as non bonding pairs. It is a useful concept to understand and analyze the reactivity polarity color phase of matter magnetism and so on. Molecular geometry of xef4 the geometry of molecules which is also commonly known as molecular structure is an atom s 3 d structure inside a molecule.
