describe the hybridization (sp3, sp2, sp) of the following bonds.

BH3 (all single bonds)
Is it sp2?

H-C triple bond C-H
Is it sp?

A double bond with two methyls connected at each end
Is it sp2?

Please Help ASAP

    yes, yes, yes although the last one must have something else attached to the two middle C atoms. As they stand they are trivalent and C doesn't like that. I assume you mean CH3C=CCH3 or more exactly, CH3CH=CHCH3.
