Solution: In a double-bonded carbon atom:a. no hybridization occurs between the s and p orbitalsb. hybridization occurs between the s orbital and three p orbitalsc. hybridization occurs between the s orbital and one p orbitald. hybridization occurs between the s orbital and two p orbitals. 

Problem

In a double-bonded carbon atom:

a. no hybridization occurs between the s and p orbitals

b. hybridization occurs between the s orbital and three p orbitals

c. hybridization occurs between the s orbital and one p orbital

d. hybridization occurs between the s orbital and two p orbitals. 

Solution

A double bonded C (C=C) follows a an sp2 hybridization where 1 s and 2 p orbitals are being used. It will
