stands for Valence
It is a theory which allows the user to predict the shapes of simple polyatomic
molecules by applying a set of straight forward rules.
computer course is designed to teach the user the VSEPR
rules. Once the user is familiar with the rules a set of worked examples
are available to show how they are applied to unfamiliar molecules. Then
there is a set of problems in which the user must determine the geometry
of a series of molecules which will be randomly selected by the computer.
the user has completed this course they are advised to work their way through
the Symmetry Practical
which is also on the Virtual
