Hybridization is a concept of mixing atomic orbitals into hybrid orbitals which are suitable for the pairing of electrons to form covalent bonds.


Hybrid orbitals are arranged around an atom and these orbitals define the shape of the molecule.


It is important to note that, we only need the hybridization of the center atoms to describe the shape of a molecule.


To determine the number of hybrid orbitals needed to describe the shape of N2O5, we will start by drawing Lewis dot structure for N2O5.
