One 's' and two 'p' orbitals when mixed together they form tree 'sp2' hybridized orbitals, if 3rd 'p' orbital also have an electron then it forms a pi-bond.

What is meant by orbital hybridization?

Hybridisation is a concept from valence bond theory where the wave functions of atomic orbitals are "mixed" to create new orbitals, so-called hybrid orbitals. These point in very sensible directions structurally, sp, linear 1800, sp2 planar 1200, sp3 tetrahedral 109.50. This then fitted with the idea of electron pairs that would sit between nuclei.

What will happen to mercury when mixed with water?

H2O as you know is hydrogen and oxygen. and how we would determen what would happen if they where mixed is look at there atomic mass. and there orbitals. oxygen has an atomic mass of 16 and hydrogen has an atomic mass of 1. so H2O has an atomic mass of 18. mercury has an atomic mass of 200. so the answer to your question is water will sit ontop of mercury. because it is much much heaver
