1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Predict the hybridization and geometry of the indicated atom. Answer all parts. 2. Relevant equations CH3CH2 There is a ( - ) sign above the second C Hybridization = ? Geometry = ? 3. The attempt at a solution I know I'm supposed to count the groups around the atom, but I'm stuck on that and that's the first step. By finding that out, I can determine the number of orbitals used, and then the type of hybrid orbital. Can someone explain how to count the number of groups? The more help the better, I really do not get it. Thanks.
