VSEPR Trigonal Bipyramidal Shape
This model structure shows the 120o trigonal & 90o bond angles formed by a central sphere & 5 smaller terminal spheres. The entire model is approximately 200mm (8") tall compared to a similar model in Orbit style which is 70mm (~3") tall.
The atoms in this VSEPR Large Classroom Model set can assume any geometry. Go to the bottom of page Unit Molecular Models for an overview or click on the Instructions/Safety tab to see videos on how to construct any molecular geometry.
This model can use this configuration or have 1 to 3 terminal spheres replaced with lone pair paddles as depicted by the smaller Orbit style models shown with it. Click on the Details tab below to view the different configurations.
