### Hybridization Application

Does every element need a hybridization formula when bonding? Or when are the circumstances when it is needed?

I'm not sure if this is what you mean but hybridization formulas (sp, sp2, sp3, etc.) denote regions of electron density and depending on how many electrons are in the hybridized orbitals (paired or unpaired) it would inform you whether or not the atom can have a certain amount of bonds.

Yes, whenever an atom is bonded to another atom, its regions of electron density are hybridized into sp, sp2, etc. orbitals.
