Why is the water bond angle 104.5 less than the CH4 bond angle 109.5?

in water there are two bond pairs and two lone pairs where as in CH4 there are are four bond pairs nad no lone pair. in ch4 there is only bond pair to bond pair repulsion but in water there are three types of repulsions, lone to lone (greatest repulsion), lone to bond ( lesser repulsion ) and bond to bond ( the least repulsion) , therefore due to the presence of two lone pairs in water the bond pairs are repelled with greater force and they get compressed, reducing the ideal bond angle from 109.5 to 104.5 on the other hand, ch4 has only bond pairs and they dont repel each other that strongly so its angle is greater n its 109.5..

What happens to the price of a bond when a coupon is announced and to the price of a stock when dividend is announced.Why and how.Please provide suitable examples?

Generally, the price of a stock will rise around the same amount as the announced dividend. This may happen within a trading day or over a few days, because buyers are guaranteed a known return on their investment (the dividend). There is an element of risk involved in buying a share simply because it is about to go ex-dividend. A share's price will usually drop by the amount of the dividend very quickly after the ex-dividend date because new buyers won't be eligible for the dividend. Therefore, you could be holding a share that is worth less than what you paid for it and you will have to hold onto it for a while. But if the company's financials are solid, it is not unusual for the price to actually continue to rise. It depends a great deal on where the dividends are coming from, genuine profit or borrowings.
