Designating hybrid orbitals

  1. Sep 2, 2005 #1
    How would you designate the hybrid orbtial formed by "mixing" one d, one s, and 2 p orbitals? How many of the hybrid orbitals would be formed by the mixing?

    Have you any guesses ?

    This is standard textbook stuff. It will be covered in your chapter on hybridization.
