I don't believe double bonds effect hybridization because it is based on regions of electron density.

The second bond would form as a result of an unhybridized orbital.

The second bond formed as a result of an unhybridized orbital would be a pi- bond.

Double bonds do not affect hybridization because a double bond still represents a single location of electron density. An easy way to determine what type of hybridization is to use steric numbers.

Steric Number= number of bonded atoms + number of lone pairs.

Notice that the number of bonds is not included in this calculation.

Pi-bonds are formed with unhybridized p-orbitalsm, so I'm sure hydridization and double-bonds don't go together. On the other hand, sigma-bonds are usually formed with sp or sp^2 hybrid orbitals.

When focusing on hybridization, you look at the regions of electron density. Therefore, a single, double, or triple bond between atoms would all be considered one electron density region. On the other hand, lone pairs would be considered as well in hybridization.

a double bond would be a sigma and pi bond
