Question

Bond angle in PH3 is:

Solution

Correct option is

Much less than NH3 and PF3

 

Bond angles   NH3   >   PF3   >   PH3

                   (107.3°)   (97.8°)   (93.8°)

PF3 > PH3, âˆµ Fluorine atoms are large and need more space.

NH3 > PH3, it is a general trend, bond angle decrease down the group.
