Unformatted text preview: of the simplest stable hydrocarbon would be CH 2 , if we did not consider hybridization. I wouldnt have predicted that because that would only give it six valence electrons. Would this species satisfy the octet rule? No. 54. Predict the hybridization at each carbon atom in each of the following molecules. a. acetone: 1 sp 2 and two sp 3 s b. glycine: 1 sp 3 and one sp 2 c. nitrobenzene: 6 sp 2 s d. chloroprene: 4 sp 2 s e. 4-penten-1-yne: 2 sp 2 s, 1 sp 3 , 2 sp s 65. Write the Lewis formulas and predict the hybrid orbitals and the shapes of these polyatomic ions and covalent molecules: (next page) b. BF 3 F sp 2 hybridization, trigonal planar B F F c. SbF 6-F F sp 3 d 2 hybridization, octahedral F Sb F F F...
