Answer:

Hybridization is often a difficult concept to understand, hence to answer your question lightly, there are three forms of hybrid orbitals in which you must know, #sp^3,sp^2,sp#

Explanation:

#sp^3#

A tetrahedral in shape with bond angles of about #109°# Understand that the s means the first bond while p refers to the second, third, etc. bond.

A similar explanation can be applied to #sp^2# where it is a trigonal planar and #sp# a linear shape.

Also, in this case, double or triple bonds are considered as a single bond.
