SWBAT: Draw sp hybrid bonding orbitals for carbon
How Does This Explain Carbon’s four bonding electrons?
Electrons take up space
The space they take up is referred to as an orbital
Describes the process of change from atomic orbitals to bonding orbitals
Orbitals that have been changed for bonding
Carbon needs to share 4 Ve- to complete octet
The four Ve- in the 2nd energy level are energetically not identical: 2s2 and 2p2
Carbon will mix and rearranged these Ve- to create 4 new orbitals
One e- from the 2s2 is transferred to the third empty 2p orbital: p3
Creating 4 equal orbitals called sp3: 1s, 3p
