Hybridization of Lone Pair

Postby Nivi Ahlawat 3I » Tue Nov 03, 2015 6:13 pm

Hi, I have a question about identifying the hybridization of lone pairs in the structure CH2=CHCHO (question six of 2010 midterm). Are we supposed to simply look at the hybridization for the atom by treating the lone pairs as regions of electron density?

Yes, because when finding the hybridization of a lewis structure, the electron pair would count as an area of electron density.
