    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I do not understand how in tetra amin copper(2) ion there happens the sp2d hybridization.I understand that the dsp2 hybridization seems unreasonable .But if the the electron of copper ion really needs to be in the last D orbital ,then why there can't happen sp3 hybridization?How can a P orbital be unoccupied by any electrons?One P is without any electrons!It all seems very headachely to me as I have got exams knocking at the door.PLAESE HELP ME WITH YOR BEST ANSWERS.
    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
