### Re: How to simply determine hybridization

All you do is count the atoms connected and the number of pairs and then add the two together. If you get:
4=sp^3
3=sp^2
2=sp

Sigma bonds are formed by end-to-end overlapping while pi bonds are formed when the lobe of one orbitals overlaps another.
Single bond: 1 sigma
