XeCl_4 molecule is polar. nonpolar…. 2 Answers Voted Oldest Recent Anonymous Added an answer on April 25, 2020 at 3:49 pm :CI: CI In XeC14, the four Cl atoms are bonded to the central xenon atom in such a way that a symmetrical square planar geometry is formed, making it nonpolar. angle is 90 degree and 180 degree It is square planar Stepl: Draw a plausible Lewis structure There are 36 (8+4X7-36) valence electrons in Xeci,. The Lewis structure 1s XeCl Step 2: Determine the number of electron groups There are six electron groups around the Xe atom; four are bonding pairs nd two are lone pairs. The VSEPR notion is AX4E2. Step 3: Identify the electron group geometry The distribution of the four electron groups is octahedral Step 4: Identify the molecular geometry n the Xecl,molecular, six electron pairs in the valence shell around the Ke atom; in which four are bonding pairs and two are as lone pair Because there are six electron groups, the electron-group geometry is ctahedral, but two of the coners of the octahedral is occupied by the one-pair electrons. The corresponding geometry is square planer. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Anonymous Added an answer on April 25, 2020 at 3:49 pm x e Ci YO P AL AND THIS Do 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Featured image Select file Browse Answer Anonymously Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
