What is the Hybridization of the Carbon atoms in Ethylene

What is the Hybridization of the Carbon atoms in Ethylene sp2 Hybridisation Consider ethene (ethylene, CH2 = CH2) molecule as the example. In the formation of CH2 = CH2 each carbon atom in its excited state undergoes sp2 hybridisation by intermixing one s-orbital (2s) and two p-orbitals (say 2px , 2py) and reshuffling to form three sp2 orbitals. Now each carbon atom is … Read more
