  1. What is linear comination of atomic orbitals
    process by which atomic orbitals combine and overlap to form more complex orbitals.
  2. What is hybridization?
    LCAO (linear combination of atomic orbitals) within one atom
  3. What hybridization is carbon in CO2?
    sp
  4. how to tell the hybridization of a molecule and shape?
    count the number of regions of high electron density.
