Homework Help: Chemistry - Hybridization

Posted by Eunice on Tuesday, December 5, 2006 at 11:51am.

Can anyone help me with this questioin pleasee?

Describe the orientation and relative energy levels of sp2 and sp3 orbitals with respect to unhyberdized orbitals (1s, 2s, 2px, 2py, 2pz orbitals)

1s and 2s are spherical.
2px, 2py, and 2pz are at 90o to each other (mutually perpendicular) along the x, y, and z spatial axes. I'm sure there are pictures in your text or you can find some on the web. The hybidized sp2 orbitals are trigonal planar and the sp3 hybridized orbitals are tetrahedral.
