Lewis structure for KrF2?
and what would be the electron and molecular geometry?
Kr the atom:
4th S (II) , 4th P's (II) (II) (II) , 4th D's ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( )
Kr energized for 2 covalent bond:
4th S (II) , 4th P's (II) (II) (I ) , 4th D's (I ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( )
one Fluorine can bond ith the lone electron in the 4thP, the other Fluorine will bond with the lone electron in the "expanded shell" 4th D
the electron Pair geometry is that of any SP3D, trigonal bipyramid
the molecula geometry has the 3 non-bonded pairs of electrons at the center equitorially,
which allows the fluorines to bond at the poles
your molecular shape is Linear
