Difference between hybridization and hybrid orbitals

Postby Diane Kang 2F » Thu Nov 29, 2018 2:33 am

What is the difference between stating the hybridization of an atom and identifying hybrid orbitals of an atom?

hybrid orbitals are orbitals created by the combination of atomic orbitals in the same atom. Hybridization happens when atomic orbitals mix to form a new atomic orbital.
