Hi I know that VSEPR theory and IM forces are gonna be on the test, but is hybridization gonna be on the test too??

If I remember correctly I think that Dr. Lavelle said it would not be on the test.

I don't believe hybridization will be on the test. Dr. Lavelle said on Friday there was one more slide from tomorrow's lecture that will be on the test and I believe that it's related to sigma and pi bonds.

We still have Monday lecture too so it might be in that lecture and therefore on the test

Lavelle said during Friday's lecture that hybridization will not be included on the test. The cutoff will be at sigma bonds which will be the first slide on Monday's lecture

Hybridization should not be included, but we will be expected to know all the various molecular shapes (linear, tetrahedral, etc.) along with bond angles that do relate to the hybridization

What exactly is the difference between hybridization and VSEPR theory then? Hybridization is used to calculate the number of electron pairs which directly relates to shapes of molecules, but VSEPR theory is the actual shapes?
