and molecular geometries then estimate the F−S−F bond angle.

Solution:

The central atom (S) has 5 electron domains; the electron-domain geometry is:

Since there is a non-bonding pair of electrons, the molecular geometry is:

In this geometry, there are two angles; 120° and 180°

However, because of the non-bonding pair, these angles are a little bit different.
