Orbital orientation of a carbon in ethyne
To the To understand bonding in more detail, the orbitals of a carbon atom involved in the bond are listed again here.
A 2s and a 2p atomic orbital bind 2 an sp hybrid orbitals. The 2 p atomic orbitals, which are not used for hybridization, overlap to form two π bonds.
The SP2-Hybrid orbitals have an angle of 180 ° to each other. The p orbitals are perpendicular to the molecular plane (xz plane).
