The molecular geometry of SF6 is octahedral.


The molecular geometry of $\mathrm{SF}_{6}$ is octahedral. What is the geometry of $\mathrm{SF}_{4}$ (including lone pair(s) of electrons, if any) ?

  1. Trigonal bipyramidal

  2. Square planar

  3. Tetrahedral

  4. Pyramidal

Correct Option: 1


$4 \sigma$ bonds $+1$ lone pair

$\therefore$ Shape (including lone pair of electrons) is

Trigonal bipyramidal
