Best Answer

Each carbon atom in benzene has 3 sp2 hybridized orbitals.

Benzene has 6 carbon atoms.

Therfore, there are 18 sp2 hybridized orbitals in benzene.

It is planer because all carbons are sp2 hybridised and a sp2 hybrid carbon forms planar 4 atom sytem (methanal - H2C=O is the perfect example).

How carbocation possess sp2 hybridisation?

tertiary alcohol is sp3 hybridised. when carbocation is formed hydroxyl takes its as well as carbon atoms electrons as a result one of the p orbital of carbon becomes empty thus carbon atom in order to attain stabilty undergoes hybridisation with one s orbital and remaining two p orbitals and becomes sp2 hybridised


What is the hybridization of the central atom in ch3?

I take it you mean the CH3+ a carbocation. The central C is sp2 hybridised. The methyl radical CH3 is very nearly planar, and so the central C atom is close to sp2 hybridised


How many double bonds are present in benzene?

Actually, there are no double bonds in a benzene molecule. The benzene molecule has six carbon atoms bonded by single bonds. The hybridization of carbon atoms in benzene is sp2. And six hydrogen atoms are bonded as one to each carbon atom. Now, there is one electron left in each carbon in p orbitals. All six of them participate in to form delocalized molecular orbitals, which have six electrons in them.


How far apart are the sp2 orbitals in an sp hybridization?

Sp2 orbitals are used in the expansion of the molecules shape. The difference in distance between the Sp2 orbital in an SP hybridization is 120 degrees.


How many electrons are in benzene?

Benzene has 42 electrons. With chemical formula C6H6: 6 electrons for each carbon 1 electron for each hydrogen... 6(6) + 1(6) = 36 + 6 = 42 electrons Each carbon has 3 'sp2' orbitals: -one of which overlaps the 's' orbital of H -and the remaining 'sp2' orbitals constitute the sigma bonds between carbons Each carbon has a 'p' orbital (each contain a single electron) which create two rings of electron density above and below the benzene ring. These 6 adjacent 'p' orbitals fully conjugate the ring, resulting in benzene's aromaticity and unusual stability.


How many atomic orbitals must be mixed to make the sp2 hybrid orbital?

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.
