Answer

What is the electron-domain (charge-cloud) geometry of IF5

Lewis dot structure:

Lewis electron dot structure is a structure of a molecule that shows the bonding between atoms as well as lone pairs of electrons of atoms also.

The Lewis structure of IF 5 is as follows:

First we calculate the total valance electron as follows:

Valance electron =7^{*} 1(\mathrm{I})+7^{*} 5(\mathrm{~F})

=7+35

=42

There are 10 bond electrons and reaming 42-10=32 electrons are present as bond pair as follows:

Part A: Electron pair geomentray = Octahedral

PartB: Molecular geomentry = Square pyramidal
