Writing out

Postby 705088777 » Mon Nov 26, 2018 12:48 pm

Can someone explain how to write out the hybridization. in the textbook it would be like : pi(H1s,C2sp2). What does that mean?

Essentially, you can use that format for any kind of bond between two atoms (sigma or pi). Each atom will contribute a hybridized or unhybridized orbital when forming this bond. If you look at your example, just replace each element and hybridization to universalize for any bond.
