Molecular Geometry Laboratory
This molecular geometry laboratory utilizes both Lewis structures and computer models using Models 360. Students will explore shape and polarity as they manipulate three-dimensional molecular structures. The resource includes a brief introduction, pre-lab assignment, procedure and data tables for students to use.
