Molecular Geometry Simulation

Molecular geometries are the specific shapes that atoms arrange themselves in to form covalent molecules. A set of rules and properties allow us to predict what shape a molecule will be when multiple atoms are bonded together. However, there are many different geometries that molecules can take on and it can be difficult to conceptualize what they may look like on a 3D plane.

To help those studying chemistry better visualize unique molecular geometries, I coded a simulation from scratch. This program allows you to add different atoms together and will arrange them as they would appear in the real world. Some of the unique features of the program include being able to add multiple central atoms to bond off of, allowing complex molecules to be shown, and accurately depicting the size of atoms of different elements in relation to one another.
