Do double and triple bonds change the hybridization of an atom?

No, a double or triple bond doesn't change the hybridization. You can treat them the same way as you do a single bond. They count as "1".

Nope. The hybridization of an atom with a single bond would be the same as an atom with a triple bond (all other things being equal). Hybridization is really more about regions of electrons, so making a bond between the same two atoms stronger wouldn't change hybridization in the way a lone pair or a bond to another atom would.

They just add un-hybridized orbitals. The hybrid orbital stays the same but the extra electrons are held in p orbitals.

No they do not. The only thing that matters is the areas of electron density.

It would if you consider Carbon for example that it changed from sp3 to sp2 when it is double bonded. It is dependent on the number of bonding regions.

No they do not. All bonds (single, double, triple) are considered as one bond. Hybridization is really more about regions of electrons.

Ignore the bonds and simply pay attention to ares of electron density to determine hybridization.

Double and triple bonds do not change the hybridization of an atom. It only changes with the amount of electron densities.

No, only electron density matters.

No and this is also why for vsepr any resonance structure can be used

No the type of bond doesn't matter but the number of areas of high electron density do.

No, because the number of areas of electron density remains the same.

Nope! The only thing that affects hybridization is the electron configuration from what I understand. For example, a linear electron configuration means that the hybridization is sp.

No they do not. (single, double, triple) bonds are all the same value in hybridization

No, they do not change the hybridization of an atom, only areas of electron density change it.

No, you just count the regions of electron density.

No you can count them as 1 region of density for each double/triple bond.
