Question

Explain the non-linear shape of $$H_{2}S$$ and non-planar shape of $$PCl_{3}$$ using valence shell electron pair repulsion theory.


Solution

In both $$H_{2}S$$ and $$PCl_{3}$$, lone pairs are present along with bond pairs around the central atom. According to VSEPR, theory L.P-L.P > L.P-B.P > B.P.-B.P. Therefore, shapes are different.
