See Saw : Four Bonding Locations and One Lone Pairs



This is an example of the seesaw molecule that contains one lone pair. The lone pair is located on the right side of the molecule, forcing the other atoms to create a 90 degree angle between them in a 2-dimensional structure. This particular molecule is SULFURIC FLORIDE, SF4.

Tim, I like how you did the drawing by hand because this is a hard shape to show on paint so good job!!

Mr. rod doesnt the see saw have one lone pair....on the title you say there are no lone pair...and do we have to remmeber all the shapes or just the names the angles ....is there anything else we need to know?

The names are the shapes and you are right this has one lone pair

The gif rotating image does not seem to have the correct geometry. One of the axial-equatorial angles is not 90 degrees.
