How do i work out hybridization?
Can you be more specific? My first reaction is "with a good textbook". Failing that, try Wikipedia. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orbital_hybridisation You may also be interested in the valence shell electron pair repulsion (VSEPR) theory: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VSEPR
lol thanx anyway i wanted some1 to teach me the whole concept
There is a lot to explain the entire concept of hybridization, and the material is already out there in text books and on the net. If you don't have a proper textbook, here are a couple of free hybridization tutorials: http://chemistry.boisestate.edu/people/richardbanks/inorganic/bonding%20and%20hybridization/bonding_hybridization.htm http://www.science.uwaterloo.ca/~cchieh/cact/c120/hybrid.html Here is a 6 minute YouTube video on electronic and molecular geometry. You should also know this. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KJjNfsRfFXU After you read the wikipedia articles, the tutorials, and watched the video let me know if there is anything you don't understand.
thanx 4 all the help...
