need help on this question right here if you don't mind... Identify the hybridization of the C in the following
compounds and identify the type and number of each type of bonds formed
from the hybridization. CI4 C2F2 C2Br2
The carbon atom can utilize its two singly occupied p-type orbitals (the designations px py or pzare meaningless in this context, lacking order), to form two covalent bonds with two hydrogen atoms, yielding the single methlyne CH2, the simplest carbene. The carbon atom can also bond to four hydrogen atoms by an excitation of an electron from the doubly occupied 2s orbital to the empty 2p orbital, producing four singly occupied orbitals.
