Perpendicular Bond Angle

Postby Olivia Young 1A » Mon Nov 19, 2018 1:32 pm

At the end of lecture today, we went over how an unhybridized p-orbital is at a perpendicular angle to the hybridized orbital. Do 90 degree bond angles always form between pi-bonds and an unhybridized p-orbital, or was it just this one example?

Unhybridized p-orbitals lie on the x, y, and z axis and are always 90 degrees from each other. They will also be 90 degrees from hybrid orbitals as well.
