Orbital Hybridization is the concept of mixing of atomic orbitals into new hybrid orbitals that are capable of pairing electrons to form chemical bonds.
Groups attached to the central atom. (Lone pairs and surrounding elements)
1 + 1 =
1 + 2 =
1 + 3 =
1 + 3 + 1 =
1 + 3 + 2 =
Each group attached or a lone pair can be considered as 1.
We can determine the hybridization of the central atom of CCl4 through its electron geometry.
Select the correct hybridization for the central atom based on the electron geometry CCl4.
