Unformatted text preview: If the lone pair is on the central atom, include it when finding its steric number (SN). What would you expect the hybrid orbitals to look like for a central atom with a lone pair? (i.e. how many electrons in each hybrid orbital) Show the hybrid orbitals formed for an NH 3 . 4. Write out the wave function of the bond(s) in a O 2, Li 2 , and an H 2 O molecule....
