[SOLVED] directional bonding
I was wondering how I could determine if a molecule has directional bonding or non-direction bonding? Is it determined by the shape of a molecule?

It is determined by the hybridization of the bonding orbital. An 's' orbital is omnidirectional. All others are directional.

Okay. Thank you.
