HOW WE WILL COME TO KNOW THAT A GIVEN COMPOUND IS PLANAR OR NON PLANAR,SPECIFICALLY, THEIR BONDS ARE PLANAR OR NON PLANAR?

Expert Answer:

Planarity or nonplanarity is determined by geometry which is further contolled by hybridisation of the central atom in the compound so by knowing the hybridisation we can tell that a conpound is planar or not. For eg if hybridisation if sp or sp2 it will be planar but if it is sp3, sp3d it will be nonplanar
