Unformatted text preview: the orbitals of two sp-hybridized carbons positioned along the x-axis as shown. C C ! x-axis A sigma bond forms from overlap of two sp x orbitals. ! z ! y Two separate !-bonds form from overlap of the p y and p z orbitals. In ethyne, C 2 H 2 , the remaining sp x orbitals overlap with the 1s orbital of H. H-C C-H...
