Unformatted text preview: sp 3 d and sp 3 d 2 . The groups will be arranged in a trigonal bipyramidal arrangement with sp 3 d hybridization. ..bond angles will be 120 o in the plane with two groups arranged vertically above and below this plane. There will be an octahedral arrangement with sp 3 d 2 hybridization. ..all bond angles are at 90 o ....
