Problem

The reaction shown is important in the industrial preparation of dichlorodimethylsilane for eventual conversion to silicone polymers.

2CH3Cl + Cl + Si → (CH 3)2SiCl2

(b) On the basis of the molecular model of (CH 3)2SiCl2, deduce the hybridization state of silicon in this compound. What is the principal quantum number n of the silicon s and p orbitals that are hybridized?
