Which statement about structure and bonding is INCORRECT?

a. ) The bond length is the internuclear distance.
b. ) The covalent bond is a region of high electron charge density between two atoms.
c. ) Hybrid orbitals are combination of atomic orbitals.
d. ) There are the same number of hybrid orbitals produced as the number of atomic orbitals combined.
e. ) An sp hybridization produces a tetrahedral centre in a molecule.


I think the answer is either a or b. I can't decide which one is incorrect. I do believe that the others are wrong unless someone can correct me.

Please and Thanks!!

    Dunno why questions didn't post.

    I thinks either a or e. Not 100% sure. Correct me if I'm wrong.


    Thanks!!

    The reason you are having trouble posting is that you (probably) are trying to copy and paste. This forum does not allow that. You will need to type in your complete question.
