What is the bond angle of a trigonal bipyramidal?

The Chlorine atoms are as far apart as possible at nearly 90o and 120obond angle. This is trigonal bipyramid geometry. Trigonal bipyramid geometry is characterized by 5 electron pairs.

Also asked, what are the bond angles of a seesaw?

Seesaw molecular geometry
Steric number 5
Coordination number 4
Bond angle(s) 90°, 120°, 180°
μ (Polarity) >0

What is the bond angle of h2cs?

The three connected carbon center has sp2 hybridisation, so the molecule is trigonal planar i.e. All the atoms are in one plane and all bond angles are roughly 120 degrees, give or take!

What is the bond angle of a trigonal pyramidal molecule?

This would result in the geometry of a regular tetrahedron with each bond angle equal to cos1(−13) ≈ 109.5°. However, the three hydrogen atoms are repelled by the electron lone pair in a way that the geometry is distorted to a trigonal pyramid (regular 3-sided pyramid) with bond angles of 107°.
