CHEMISTRY BLOG ON ‘Marshmallow Experiment’ MOLECULAR SHAPES

Today, my partner and I have learned how molecular shapes are formed. We were able to discover this through the use of marshmallows and toothpicks for our representation. From this, the trend which we were able to see is that it’s shape changes due to the number of atoms varying from one to another. This clearly affects the size, shape and style of the molecule. This was when we truly discovered how the VSEPR theory worked in our modern day society through different shapes of molecules due to the number of atoms, bonds and lone pairs which all affect it’s bond angle and it’s molecular shape
