hybridization orbitals

Postby Nan_Guan_1L » Thu Dec 10, 2020 2:27 am

Dr. Lavelle in class said whenever we have a hybridized orbital it is always going to be 90 degrees to the unhybridized orbital. I'm confused as to why it that? can someone please explain. thank you!!

At least in the case of p orbitals, the px, py, and pz axes are 90 degrees from each other so that is why the orbitals will be at 90 degrees.
