Hybridization for the midterm

At this point in the quarter are we expected to only know which hybridization to use based off knowing the corresponding number of electron regions or are there other ways to determine the hybridization of an atom?

Re: Hybridization for the midterm

based on number of regions of electron density

Re: Hybridization for the midterm

Yes you need to know that hybridization only deals with regions of density as hybridized orbitals only encompass sigma bonds and lone pairs
