Question #d8fc7

An $s p 3$ hybridization uses 4 identical orbitals made up of an $\text{s orbital}$ and $\text{3 p orbitals}$.
The idea of $\text{hybridization}$ was developed by Linus Pauling to offer a solution to explain $C {H}_{3}$'s tetrahedral geometry. With the inclusion of the s and p orbital came the new hybrid orbital, $s p 3$. The hybridized orbitals are shaped differently then their individual components.
