🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Lapeyrouse's class at UCF.
Analyze the number of groups attached on the highlighted atom and determine the hybridization
Remember that each groups or domains correspond to the atom or lone pair attached on the atom
Orbitals that can be used by the atoms are:
Subshell Total # of orbitals
s _ 1 orbital
p _ _ _ 3 orbitals
d _ _ _ _ _ 5 orbitals
Consider the molecule below. Determine the hybridization at each of the 2 labeled carbons.
A) C1 = sp3, C2 = sp2
B) C1 = sp3d , C2 = sp3d
C) C1 = sp2, C2 = sp2
D) C1 = sp2, C2 = sp3d
E) C1 = sp2, C2 = sp3
