6th edition 4.31

Postby Andrea- 3J » Thu Nov 15, 2018 8:04 pm

"State the relative orientation of the following hybrid orbitals: a)sp3 b) sp c) sp3d2 d)sp2"

How do I determine the relative orientation of b and d?

For sp3 its 4 electron density groups with tetrahedral orientation
For sp3d2 its 6 electron density groups with octahedral orientation

sp has two electron density groups which is a linear orientation. sp2 has three electron density groups which is a trigonal planar orientation.
