Vsepr worksheets answers self test chapter 10 author s version of a practice test self test chapter 10 answers writing lewis structures for covalent compounds. Worksheet 13 molecular shapes the shapes of molecules can be predicted from their lewis structures by using the vsepr valence shell electron pair repulsion model which states that electron pairs around a central atoms will assume a geometry that keeps them as far apart from each other as possible. Therefore regions of electron densities will.
