AlBr3 - Aluminum Tribromide:
First draw the Lewis dot structure:
Electron geometry: trigonal planar. Hybridization: sp2
Then draw the 3D molecular structure using VSEPR rules:
Click and drag the molecle to rotate it.
The molecular geometry of AlBr3 is trigonal planar with symmetric charge distribution around the central atom.
Therefore this molecule is nonpolar.
