Question

The bond angle between carbon and hydrogen atoms in a methane molecule is _____ degrees.
  1. 109.5


Solution

The correct option is A 109.5
The carbon atom in methane (CH4) is sp3 hybridised. The four hybrid orbitals in a methane molecule are oriented along the four corners of a tetrahedron, to minimise the repulsion.

Hence, the bond angle in methane is 109.50.
