Unformatted text preview: c. Label the atomic and hybrid orbitals in the second column. d. In the third column, draw a set of boxes representing sp 2 orbitals at the appropriate energy height. Be sure to use the correct number of boxes. Draw the unhybridized orbital(s) at the appropriate height. e. Repeat step d, in the fourth and fifth columns for sp 3 orbitals. The fourth and fifth columns should be identical at this point. f. Fill the boxes in the fifth column with correct number of valence electrons for the element nitrogen. g. Based on the fifth column, predict the number of lone pairs on nitrogen atom in ammonia. Atomic Orbitals Hybrid Orbitals- sp Hybrid Orbitals- sp 2 Hybrid Orbitals- sp 3 Hybrid Orbitals- sp 3...
