MOLECULAR GEOMETRY SHOWN BY BALLOONS<br />
(4 of 5) Five Balloons Give A Trigonal Bipyramidal Geometry<br />
Valence shell electron pair repulsion (VSEPR) demonstrated by tying balloons representing electron pairs together. Phosphorus Pentachloride, PCl5,  has a five electron pair geometry where the Cl atoms are  at nearly 90' and at a 120' bond angle.
