Unformatted text preview: ence Bond Theory: This is the idea that bonds form hybridized orbitals. To figure out the shape of the hybridized orbital, you count the number of P jC p byv Each one counts as "one." For example, methane has four, so the molecule is sp 3 hybridized.
Applied problem: Determine the hybridization of the nitrogen in the following molecule. Molecular/Electron Geometry: Dependent on the number of lone pairs and bonds the molecule makes. The following are the most common in Organic Chemistry.
