How does Carbon hybridize it's S and P
orbitals and what effect does this have on the
3D structure and chemical behavior? Your answer must include
1) diagrams of SP, SP2, and SP3 bonds as well as
any left over Py or Pz orbitals;
2) a discussion with diagrams of how the sigma
(single), pi Double, and triple bonds are formed.
