FAQ
What is a Bond angles chart? 
The bond angles chart contains data for each VSEPR notation. Using this data, we can predict the ideal bond angle for a molecule. For instance, let’s say the VSEPR notation is AX_{2}E_{2} – According to Bond angles chart data –

What does VSEPR notation represent in the Bond angles chart? 
The VSEPR notation in the bond angles chart is denoted as the AXE formula where A represents the central atom, X denotes the number of bonded atoms to the central atom, and E represents the number of lone pairs on the central atom.
