Optimal hybridized alkane angle

Postby Chem_Mod » Thu Aug 25, 2011 2:21 pm

The computer stated that the optimal hybridized C-C-C angle value was 60º. However, we know that cyclopropane is sp3 hybridized and therefore should have an optimal value of 109.5º. Which value should we use?

For sp3 the optimal value is 109.5º.
