The molecular shape and bond angle of water are respectively

  • A. Linear, 180 degrees
  • B. Bent, 109.5 degrees
  • C. Tetrahedral, 109.5 degrees
  • D. Bent, 105 degrees




The shape of water molecule is bent (or angular, or V), and the…

Bond angle = 104.5 degrees between the two hydrogens.

Now for the right answer to the above question:

  1. Option A is incorrect. this will be the attributes of carbon dioxide molecule.
  2. Option B is incorrect.
  3. C is incorrect. this should be the attributes of methane molecule.
  4. D is the correct answer.
