The molecular shape of xenon tetrafluoride is square planar. The central atom xenon forms a single bond with four fluorine atoms.
Lewis structure represents the valence electrons of each atom of a chemical element. Valence electrons are located in the outermost shell of the atom and they readily participate in chemical reactions to form other substances. Valence shell electron pair repulsion explains the effect of the repulsion from bonding and nonbonding electrons on the molecular shape of the compound.
