According tp VSEPR theory predict the geometry and shape of i3+ ion

The structure of I3+ is bent or V-shaped and the hybridization is sp3

The formula for determining the hybridization is

1/2{No:of valence electron in central atom+ Monovalent atom attached to central metal atom+anionic charge-cationic charge}

Applying 1/2[7+2-1+0] = 4 = sp3

The central atom has 6 electrons because of the one +ve charge

lone pair will be upside thus makes a bent shape
