It is an averaging of four different orbitals to form four equal orbitals.


The 1 s orbital is blended with the 3 p orbitals, to form 4 #sp^3# orbitals that are all equal in energy.

The advantage of forming #sp^3# orbitals allow the formation of more bonds than would be possible without hybridization.

The formation of multiple bonds allows atoms to achieve greater stability.

#sp^3 hybridization always the formation of four equal bonds.
