CHECK OUT MODELS360 AT CHEMED DL! (Search for methane and view its 3D shape, bond lengths, and bond angles)   Hybridizati on is a theory (not a proven fact) that allows us to account for certain key structural issues (like bond angles) that are not easily accounted for in other bonding...

CHECK OUT MODELS360 AT CHEMED DL! (Search for methane and view its 3D shape, bond lengths, and bond angles)   Now let's see how hydridization can account for each of these features, working towards methane then other alkanes:   ...

document sp2 Hybridization
CHECK OUT MODELS360 AT CHEMED DL! (Search for "formaldehyde" and view its 3D shape, bond lengths, and bond angles) When a C atom is attached to 3 groups and so is involved in 3 σ bonds, it requires 3 orbitals in the hybrid set. This requires that it is sp2 hybridized. The general "steps" are...

CHECK OUT MODELS360 AT CHEMED DL! (Search for ethyne and view its 3D shape, bond lengths, and bond angles)   When a C atom is attached to only 2 groups and so is involved in 2 π bonds, it requires 2 orbitals in the hybrid set. This requires that it is sp hybridized. The general "steps" are...
