QUESTION

# What is the electron geometry of xenon tetrafluoride XeF4?

The geometry of XeF_4 is square planar.

The square planar geometry is a simple consequence of .

There are 8+4xx7 = 18" electron pairs" to distribute over 5 centres. An AX_4E_2 structure where the lone pairs are trans-axial is the most stable electronic configuration.
