ibr2 br03
assing reasons for the following 
sf6 is kinetically inert
nf3 is an exothermic compound whereas ncl3 is not
hcl is a stronger acid than hf through fluorine is more electronegative than chlorine

Expert Answer:

(i) XeBr2 or XeF2

XeF2 is isoelectronic to IBr2- (2 Bond pairs + 4 lone pairs = 6, sp3d2 occupied with 2 lone pairs) and it has a linear structure.

(ii) XeO3

XeO3 is isostructural to BrO3- (3 Bond pairs + 1 lone pair =4, sp3 occupied by one lone pair) and has a pyramidal molecular structure.
