sp3 hybridization The process of mixing of one s- orbital with three p- orbitals in an atom to form four sp3 hybrid orbitals of equivalent energy is
61.Covalent Bonding(7)- Hybridization(2).
CONCEPT OF HYBRIDIZATION As we studied in the last post, Linus Pauling introduced an imaginary concept of ‘hybridization of atomic orbitals to explain the valency and
59. Covalent Bonding(5)- VESPR model(3).
Lone pairs – AXIAL OR EQUATORIAL POSITION? In the structures mentioned in the previous post, we have two positions, namely – axial and equatorial. Equatorial
58. Covalent Bonding(4)- VESPR model(2).
In the VSEPR model, the valence shell is considered a sphere. The electron pairs are considered to be on this spherical surface, as far away
57. Covalent Bonding(3)- VESPR model(1).
In the last two posts, we discussed the valence bond theory (VBT) at length. The VBT theory is not foolproof and we shall discuss its
55. Covalent Bonding(1)- VBT (1)
Bonding in molecules forms the basis of elucidating their structure, which in turn dictates the properties of substances. In this post, we shall learn about
48. Is it accurate?
The last few posts were dedicated entirely to studying the periodic table of elements. This table is at the core of almost everything that is
47.THE PERIODIC TABLE – Melting point(M.P) , Bond dissociation energy(BDE)&Bond energy.
We start discussing the last important periodic properties in this post – melting point, bond dissociation energy and bond energy. Melting point(M.P) – The temperature
46.THE PERIODIC TABLE – Electronegativity,EN( χ).
We introduce ourselves to a new concept in this post, which is quite pertinent to the study of chemical bonds and reactions – Electronegativity. Let
45.THE PERIODIC TABLE – Electron Affinity (EA).
We begin discussing one more important property of elements in this post – The Electron Affinity(EA). Electron Affinity (EA) – As the name suggests, this parameter
44. THE PERIODIC TABLE – Ionization Energy(IE).
The study of chemistry involves understanding how elements react , how chemical reactions occur and the various reasons that drive a chemical change.In this post
