Chemistry: Of Molecules and Marshmallows

As you can see in the pictures above, they are the shapes of the molecules. These molecule shapes are based on the VSEPR Theory and the bonds between the molecules. Based on the Lewis Dot Structure, we can also figure out the shapes of the molecules. There are  kinds of molecular shapes; namely:  Linear, Trigonal Planar, Tetrahedral, Trigonal Pyramidal, Bent/Angular or V-Shape, Trigonal Bipyramidal, Octahedral. Finally, I learned that the VSEPR Theory is accurate in terms of qualitative, however it requires a Lewis Dot Structure which is time consuming.
