Distinguish, differentiate, compare and explain what is the Difference between Electron Geometry and Molecular Geometry. Comparison and Differences.

Difference between Electron Geometry and Molecular Geometry

1. The geometry in which the shape of a molecule is predicted by considering both bond electron pairs and lone electron pairs is called electron geometry. The geometry in which the shape of a molecule is predicted by considering only bond electron pairs is called molecular geometry.

2. In electron geometry, lone electron pairs are considered. In molecular geometry, lone electron pairs are not considered.

3. In electron geometry,number of total electron pairs should be calculated. In molecular geometry, number of bonding electron pairs should be considered.
