Drawing Hybrid Orbitals

Postby Summer de Vera 2C » Tue Nov 27, 2018 10:13 pm

Will we need to know how to draw hybrid orbitals? If so, do you essentially pick the energy shell (n) with orbitals that match the number of electron densities around the atom?

I don't think we will need to draw hybrid orbitals, but I am not sure. If we do. You would just use the diagram for the valence electrons of the central atom and show that the orbitals can be hybridized, or mixed, with each other to form sp or spd hybrid orbitals.

I don't think we'll need to know how to draw the energy shells of the hybrid orbitals. If anything, we might need to know general shape of the bonds that can arise from hybrid orbitals.
