PF2Cl3 - Phosphorus Difluoride Trichloride:
First draw the Lewis dot structure:
Electron geometry: trigonal bipyramidal. Hybridization: sp3d
Then draw the 3D molecular structure using VSEPR rules:
Click and drag the molecule to rotate it.
The molecular geometry of PF2Cl3 is trigonal bipyramidal with symmetric charge distribution around the central atom.
Therefore this molecule is nonpolar.
This is somewhat of a rare molecule, but here is one like it:
