Chapter 11 p.2 of 8 7.” For each of the following species, identify the central atom(s) and propose a hybridization scheme for those atom(s): (a) CO 2 ; (b) HONO 2 ; (c) ClO 3 ; (d) BF 4 . 9.” Describe a hybridization scheme for the central Cl atom in the molecule ClF 3 that is consistent with the geometric shape pictured in Table 11.1. Which orbitals of the Cl atom are involved in overlaps, and which are occupied by lone-pair electrons? 15.”
