# What is the molecular shape of phosphorus trichloride (##PCl_3##)? What are the bond angles in this molecule?

Trigonal pyramid, Tetrahedral, ##107^@##.

The Lewis structure of ##PCl_3## is the following:

This is under the form of ##AX_3E## where ##X## represents the bounded groups ##Cl## and ##E## represents the lone pairs.

The geometric shape is: **Trigonal pyramid**

The electron-pairs arrangement is: **Tetrahedral**

This is similar to the ammonia molecule ##NH_3##.

The bond angle is equal to ##107^@##.
