# Question c7a04

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, $s {p}^{3} , s {p}^{2} , s p$

#### Explanation:

$s {p}^{3}$

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 $s {p}^{2}$ where it is a trigonal planar and $s p$ a linear shape.

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