### Question 4.81

For question 4.81 which asks to predict the composition of the hybrid orbitals used by each B and N atom for the compound borazine, will we have to know this for the test? I don't think Lavelle went over this in class so I want to make sure it's not super important.

The hybridization of carbon is what they have emphasized the most in lecture and discussion, so it is more likely to be on Test 4 or the final. However, understanding how hybridization works in non-carbon atoms is also very important.

Although working with the hybridization of carbon is easy since we know for sure that carbon makes 4 bonds, the hybridization of other elements works in a similar way.
