The phenomenon in which different compounds have the same molecular and structural formula, but different geometry due to different spatial arrangement of groups with respect to a double bond or a ring is called as geometric isomerism.

Geometric isotopes are compounds that are identical in the arrangement of their covalent bonds but different in the spatial arrangement of atoms or groups of atoms.

This do occur when there is present a multiple bond (double bond) between two carbon atoms. For example in the molecule say 2-Butene (CH3-CH=CH-CH3) there is a case of geometrical isomerism.

These isomers have different spatial positions of atoms and functional groups.
