## Question:

Write a hybridization & bonding scheme for each molecule. Sketch each molecule, including overlapping orbitals and label all bonds.

## Orbital Hybridization and Bonding:

Orbital hybridization is the process of the intermixing of valence shell orbitals of similar energy of an atom. This gives a new set of hybrid orbitals that are equivalent in shape, size, and energy. The state of hybridization is determined by the number of atomic orbitals participating in the process.
