Indicate whether Cl2C=CCl2 is linear, planar, or neither. (numbers are subscript) Thanks!!
tetrachloroethene is a planar. More specifically, it is a trigonal planar.
The two carbon atoms , each forming 3 sigma bonds , are SP^2 hybridised , both carbon atoms and four chlorine atoms lie in the same plane . Hence it is a planar molecule.
it is planar molecule
