Hybridization

Postby Andrea Raymundo 1B » Wed Jun 06, 2018 2:11 am

I am not sure if i heard right but when figuring out how many hybridization orbitals one has to use, is it the same as the number of regions of electron desnities??

The sum of the subscripts should equal the total number of regions of electron density.

Yes, this is what Professor Lavelle said during class.

Yes, that's true. The idea of a hybridized orbital is that it is a way for us to describe and understand how bonding can happen when it appears that there are not enough unpaired electrons to form all of the bonds in a molecular structure. If we see that a molecular structure has 4 areas of electron density, then it must have 4 hybridized orbitals.
