### Hybridization of Hydrogen

What would be the hybridized state of hydrogen? Sometimes I see its hybridized as 1s and thats it Is that possible?

Since hybridization only happens when an atom is bonded to multiple other atoms, hydrogen itself is never hybridized because it can only form 1 bond since it only has a 1s orbital.

Hydrogen only has 1s orbital and can only make one bond, therefore it cannot undergo hybridization.

It can only from one bond because it only has one electron, which is in the 1s orbital so it can only be hybridized in the 1s orbital.
