It fts the general Formula AB 2 U 2 . Thus it has 4 regions oF high electron density around O. When this happens, the hybridation is sp 3 . 003 10.0 points Which atomic orbitals Form the sp 3 hybrid orbitals? 1. one s and one p 2. one s and two p 3. two s and three p 4. one s and three p correct 5. two s and two p Explanation:...
