Problem: What is the percentage of p character in the hybrid orbitals on the carbon atoms in this structure?a. 10%b. 25%c. 33%d. 50%e. 75%f. Not all the carbons have the same hybridization, so the percentage of p character varies

FREE Expert Solution

According to the structure given, every C is sphybridized since there's no double (sp2) or triple bonds (sp) present.
