Edexcel AS Chemistry Unit 2 by Edwin Killick

2.1 Shapes of molecules and ions

Predicting the shapes of molecules

Lone pairs affect the shape of the molecule and therefore the bond angles.

Shapes of simple organic molecules

Intermediate bonding

Polarity of bonds and molecules

2.3 Intermolecular forces

Hydrogen bonds (strongest) Permanent dipole- permanent dipole interaction London forces (weakest)

Forces between molecules

Trends in physical properties
