What is linear comination of atomic orbitals
process by which atomic orbitals combine and overlap to form more complex orbitals.
What is hybridization?
LCAO (linear combination of atomic orbitals) within one atom
What hybridization is carbon in CO2?
how to tell the hybridization of a molecule and shape?
count the number of regions of high electron density.
sp hybrid orbital molecules have what bond angle and shape?
sp2 hybrid orbital molecules have what bond angle and shape?
120 trigonal planar
sp3 hybrid orbital molecules have what bond angle and shape?
Lone pairs contribute to the dipole moment. True or false?
what are alkanes and cycloalkanes?
alkanes - hydrocarbons with single bonds all around
cycloalkanes - alkane in which the carbons form a ring
alkene and cycloalkene
alkene - hydrocarbon that contains one or more double bonds between carbons
cycloalkene - a carbon ring that has at least one double bond in it
hydrocarbon that contains one or more triple bonds
a compound that contains a benzene ring
