Part AConsider the structure of the amino acid alanine. Indicate the hybridization about each interior atom.Drag the labels to the appropriate targets.Hint 1.Identify the electron geometry of each interior atomAn approach to assign a hybridization scheme is to determine the electron geometry of each interior atom. The five VSEPR electron geometries correspondto the five main types of atomic orbital hybridization. Identify the electron geometry for each interior atom in the alanine structure.Drag the labels to the appropriate targets.ANSWER:HelpResetsp2BF3pπ: B(p) − F(p)Emptyorbitalsp2Empty orbitalpLone pair inorbitalpσ: B(s) − F(p)σ: B(p) − F(p)σ: B(s) − F(p)p2Lone pair inorbitalsp2VSEPR and MO Diagrams Workshop Activity - April 22nd...15 of 384/23/2021, 9:00 PM
ANSWER:CorrectAssign the hybridization scheme from the electron geometry of interior atoms (determined in the hint for this part). The carbon bonded to threeatomsand oneatom has a tetrahedral electron geometry and, therefore,hybridization. The carbon bonded to twoatoms, oneatom, and oneatomhas a tetrahedral electron geometry and, therefore,hybridization. The nitrogen bonded to twoatoms and oneatom has a tetrahedral electrongeometry and, therefore,hybridization. The carbon bonded to twoatoms and oneatom has a trigonal planar electron geometry and, therefore,hybridization. The oxygen bonded to oneatom and oneatom has a tetrahedral electron geometry and, therefore,hybridization.Exercise 11.68 - Enhanced - with FeedbackMISSED THIS?Read Section 11.7 (Pages 457 - 470) ; WatchKCV 11.7,IWE 11.8.HelpResetHelpResetHCsp3CHNsp3HCsp3OCsp2HCsp3trigonal planaroctahedrallineartetrahedraltrigonal planartetrahedraltetrahedraltetrahedraltetrahedralspsp2sp3VSEPR and MO Diagrams Workshop Activity - April 22nd...16 of 384/23/2021, 9:00 PM
