Determine the electron geometry (eg) and molecular geometry (mg) of the underlined atom ch3och3.

Determine the electron geometry (eg) and molecular geometry (mg) of the underlined atom CH3OCH3.

Answer options:
eg=trigonal bipyramidal, mg=tetrahedral
eg=linear, eg=linear
eg=tetrahedral, mg=tetrahedral
eg=tetrahedral, mg=bent
eg=octahedral, mg=square planar

Answer

The electron domine around the carbon 1 is 4 (four bonding). Therefore, electron geometry and molecular geometry is tetrahedr

Both carbons are sp hybridized. Hence the correct answer is tetrahedral, tetrahedral.
