Unformatted text preview: s, two in H–O bonds and two as lone pairs on the oxygen atom. But H2S has a near right angle for its H–S–H bond. This suggests that the bonds are formed with p orbitals on the sulfur atom and that H2S is not hybridized. Orbital diagram of H2S: you might have drawn something like this: S uses 2 x 3p orbitals to make σ bonds to H H S lone pairs in a 3p and a 3s orbital H S PROBLEM 3 Though the helium molec...
