Relationship btw arrangement and hybrid orbitals

Postby Baoying Li 1B » Thu Nov 14, 2019 2:47 pm

Is there a relationship between the arrangement of an atom and the hybrid orbitals used by the atom?

i think they are just always equally distributed unless there is a lone pair

If you mean arrangement as in VSEPR, then it relates to hybridization because the hybridization is according to the number of bonds (and thus electron density regions which affects molecular shape).
