Do hybrid orbitals (such as sp, sp2, sp3) possess higher energy than unhybridized ones (such as 2s, 2p)?
I believe, for example in sp3 hybrids, that the sp3 hybrids are higher than the pure s but lower than the pure p orbitals. I tried to find something on the web but this site is about the best I could do.
Thank you for clarifying! I understand this concept now.
