Unformatted text preview: same geometries of our 5 electronic geometries that VSEPR theory predicted. You will always get as many hybrid-orbitals as you do atomic orbitals to make them. Generally speaking, all hybrid orbitals have the same basic shape - a large positive lobe pointing one direction and another (smaller and negative) lobe pointing opposite (180). +-typical single hybrid orbital All the hybrid orbitals in a SET are degenerate. It is the OVERLAP of orbitals that leads to bonding. In wave-theory, this is called constructive interference. Our Quick and Dirty Method for Drawing Hybrid Orbital Sets...
