Hybridization

Postby rachelle1K » Wed Dec 04, 2019 12:04 pm

In question 2F 13, it gives the molecule CH2CHCN and asks us to find the hybridization of each carbon atom. To what extent do we take into account double bonds when determining hybridization? Are the shared electrons with double bonds spin paired?

Double bonds and triple bonds also count as only one region of electron density.

For our purposes, I don't think we need to worry too much about double or triple bonds. They are just one region of electron density.
