sp^3 orbital

Postby Frederick Keith_4C » Sun Nov 17, 2019 1:48 pm

Literally what even is hybridization and why is it important?
Also for an "sp^3 orbital" is this 4 orbitals put in one?
Like one s orbital and 3 p orbitals?
Or is it just one orbital and its 1/4 s orbital and 3/4 p orbital?

sp3 means that the s orbital is filled but the p orbital is only half filled (3 electrons hence the 3 out of 6)

We do not need to know hybridization for Test 2.
