hybridization and bond angles

Postby Kathryn 1F » Tue Nov 20, 2018 2:46 pm

Does hybridization affect bond angles? I think Lavelle mentioned it in class on Monday, but I'm still confused about why hybridization relates to angles.

Dr. Lavelle mentioned how the different hybridizations describe different shapes. Hybridization doesn't necessarily affected bond angles, but it does describe the regions of electron density, which tell us the shape and from the shape we can deduce the molecule's bond angles.
