Homework Help: chemistry

Posted by Jam09 on Friday, January 30, 2009 at 12:23am.

Hello! my question is.

Cumulene has chemical formula C4H4 with 7sigma and 3pie bonds. the 2 outer C atoms have a hybridization of "sp2", the H atoms have a hybridization of "s", and the 2 C atoms in between have "sp" hybridization. As I figured out, there has to be 3 sets of hybridizations, s/sp2 , sp/sp2 , and sp/sp. But there is another one which is p/p hybridization. Where did this p/p hybridization come from? and what does it mean?

Thank you
