What is the molecular shape of sf4?

2. Use VSEPR to find the correct geometry for an atom with five groups around it (trigonal bipyramid). you now have the geometry for SF4, which is a "seesaw," a truncated trigonal bipyramid. SF4 has the two axial fluorines bent slightly back toward the other two fluorine atoms.

Accordingly, what is the structure of sf4?

Sulfur tetrafluoride has 10 electrons around the central sulfur atom. This means there are five electron pairs arranged in an trigonal bipyramidal shape with 102° F-S-F bond angles between the equatorial fluorine atoms and 173° between the axial fluorine atoms.
