stating the hybridization of an atom

Postby Caitlin_Murphy_3C » Fri Nov 23, 2018 1:32 pm

Do we need to include the shell (n value) when stating the hybridization of an atom? For example, in homework problem 2F.5 part A (7th edition), the solutions manual says the answer as just "sp" instead of "2sp". On the test, will we need to include the 2?

Although I'm not completely sure, I think you would have to state the "2" because the number in front of "sp" makes a difference in hybridization.

it is important to indicate the value before the shell, just to be safe you should double check with your TA

i would say it has to be 2 but maybe your TA can be more flexible with it so just ask to be safe
