Problem

What is the hybridization of nitrogen in the following molecules? (Type your answer using the format sp2.)

HNNH

H3CNC

H3CNH

Solution

The nitrogen in HNNH  = sp2 due to double bond to nitrogen, single bond to hydrogen and a lone pair (3 groups)

The nitrogen in H3CNC  = sp due to having a triple bond between nitrogen and carbon and a single bond between nitrogen and the other carbon (2 groups)
