MOLECULAR GEOMETRY SHOWN BY BALLOONS (2 of 5) Three Balloons = Trigonal (Triangular) Planar Geometry<br />
Valence shell electron pair repulsion (VSEPR) demonstrated by tying together balloons representing electron pairs. The  CO3 molecule has three electron pairs resulting in a  trigonal planar position.
