Unformatted text preview: 3 . Hydrogens can only make one bond, and so they are always s orbitals. propane Choice b is wrong. All of the non-hydrogen atoms have four electron domains and are therefore sp 3 hybridized. (There are two lone pairs on the oxygen) the alcohol made from propane or Choice c is correct. The carbonyl carbon and oxygen both have only three electron domains, and are therefore sp 2 hybridized acetic acid Choice d is correct. All of the carbons in benzene are trigonal planar, containing only three electron domains, and are therefore sp 2 hybridized. benzene Choice e is wrong. Since both carbons have two electron domains and are linear, they must be sp hybridized. C 2 H 2...
