Electron density

Postby AlexandraZuniga1L » Sun Nov 25, 2018 7:37 pm

Does regions of electron density equal the the number of hybrid orbitals?

The number of hybrid orbitals equals the number of electron densities that result from bonded and lone pair electrons.

Yes, I believe they do. Finding the hybrid orbitals of an atom can thus be facilitated by knowing beforehand how many regions of electron density are around it.

yes the hybridization is the same as electron densities around the central atom as double and triple bonds require unhybridized p orbitals, single, double, and triple bonds as well as lone pairs each count as one electron density
