Filling Orbitals for Hybridization

Postby KC Navarro_1H » Sat Jun 02, 2018 10:17 pm

When given examples of filling up orbitals for hybridization, I don't really understand how they're filled using the energy charts. Could someone please clarify on this? Thank you in advance!

Basically, you count the amount of arrows (electrons) in the outer s and p orbitals and then divy them out to a new sp3 hybridization. So if you have an s with a full orbital (2 arrows) and a p with 2 arrows, it becomes four arrows pointing upwards (not one paired in a box with 2 up and an empty box.)
