Sigma and pi bonds

Postby Diana Sandoval 1K » Fri Dec 07, 2018 5:44 pm

I’m not sure if I was the only one to hear this, or if I misunderstood; but did Dr. Lavelle say during lecture that we didn’t have to worry about the hybridization of pi bonds and sigma bonds?

I understood that we have to know sigma and pi bonds and hybridization but not the hybridization specific to each bond. So we might have to say the hybridization of an atom but we won't have to know if the bond is C2sp3 or C2p
I'm still not 100% sure

We should know the hybridization, in terms of how sp3 corresponds to four regions of electron density.

We need to know the hybridization of the bonds. This means we must be able to find the hybridization of the neighboring atoms and represent the bond with both of them.

I believe he just wants the hybridization of the central atom or whatever atoms he asks. However just incase wouldn't hurt to do a couple of practice problems
