We have to determine the type of hybridization for each of the given set of orbitals.
To determine the hybridization of the given orbitals, we will have a look at various hybridizations and their bond angles.
Various geometriesthat can result by arrangement of electron groups around a central atom are:
Electron Regions Electronic Geometry Hybridization Bond Angles
Shown here are three pairs of hybrid orbitals, with each set at a characteristic angle.
For each pair, determine the type of hybridization, if any, that could lead to hybrid orbitals at the specified angle.
