Homework Help: chemistry

Posted by lyne on Wednesday, April 29, 2009 at 10:40pm.

I have to draw the QMM of CL2C2. For the Lewis structure i think that the two C atoms form a triple bond and the Cl atoms form single bonds.

Cl
|
C'triple bond'C
|
Cl

Therefore i think that the central C atom hybridizes into sp.

if this is correct, my question is how do i know which p orbital on C to form my sigma bonds for the Cl atoms. Does it matter?

thanks
