What is the hybridization at: a) the central nitrogen in N 2 O? sp 3 sp 2 sp b) the carbon in HCN? sp 2 sp sp 3 c) the oxygen in OF 2 ? sp 2 sp sp 3 2. Consider the structure of capsaicin, the molecule responsible for the "heat" of chili peppers: This is also shown in exercise 18 on page 129 of the print textbook. Please note lone pairs have been left off the structure. You will need to consider them in order to answer this question correctly. What are the approximate bond angles at the following atoms? Note: is the C-O-C angle in the upper left corner of the drawing. = 109 = 120 = 109 = 120 = 109 3. In the structure of capsaicin shown in the question above, what is the bond order at each of the following bonds? Please note that resonance structures must be taken into account to answer this question correctly. Bond W 1.5
