Does anyone know where I can get an image of the valence bond model for maleic acid?
ie. showing the pi and sigma bonds and indicating the hybridization (sp2, sp3.. )

OR could someone describe these things to me?
I'm just trying to check my work and make sure I didn't miss anything

OH bonds are linear (sp)
O=CH2 are sp2
R2CH2 are sp3.
C=C are sp2
I'm clear on everything except the 3rd statement:
R2CH2 are sp3.
Could you clarify the R? And where does this bond occur on the molecule? I have it drawn out.. but this isn't popping out at me.
