We are asked how many hybrid orbitals do we use to describe C2H5NO
Observe the Lewis structure:
C → Group 4A → 4 valence electrons
H → Group 1A → 1 valence electron
N → Group 5A → 5 valence electrons
O → Group 6A → 6 Valence electrons
How many hybrid orbitals do we use to describe each molecule?
C2H5NO (4 C - H bonds and one O - H bond)
