GeH4 - Germanium Tetrahydride (Germane):
First draw the Lewis dot structure:
Electron geometry: tetrahedral. Hybridization: sp3
Then draw the 3D molecular structure using VSEPR rules:
Click and drag the molecule to rotate it.
The molecular geometry of GeH4 is tetrahedral with a symmetric charge distribution.
Therefore this molecule is nonpolar.
