Hybridization and Electron Configurations

Postby Julia Lindner 1I » Sun Nov 25, 2018 11:47 pm

When stating the hybridization of a specific atom in a given molecule, is it necessary to draw out the electron configuration for the atom, including the pairings of the electrons in each orbital, like prof. Lavelle did in class?

I don't think so.

I would draw the lewis dot structure at least!

Yes, it is necessary. By drawing the lewis structures you can see the number of regions of electron density and therefore, you can see the number of hybridization orbitals.
