Lecture 23 Question

Postby Marylyn Makar 1B » Thu Nov 26, 2020 12:39 pm

Hi! During lecture 23 when Dr. Lavelle was talking about sp2 hybridization for ethene, he wrote that it forms sp3 hybrid orbitals. I was confused because I thought ethene formed sp2 hybrid orbitals? Could anyone clarify this? Thank you.

Maybe he just accidentally wrote sp3 instead? I checked Google and also found that ethene has 2 sp2 orbitals.

Yes, I think that might have been an error since I also think that ethene has two sp2 hybridization orbitals.
