🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Daoudi's class at UCF.
Consider a chemical species like the one in the previous problem in which a carbon atom forms three single bonds to three hydrogen atoms, but in which the carbon atom possesses an unshared electron pair.
(a) What formal charge would the carbon atom have?
(b) What total charge would the species have?
(c) What total charge would the species have?
(d) What would you expect the hybridization state of the carbon atom to be?
