Hybrid and Molecular Orbitals Homework Problem Set

This problem set was developed by S.E. Van Bramer for Chemistry 145 at Widener University.


  1. Draw Lewis dot structures, determine the hybridization of each atom, determine the molecular shape, determine the bond types, determine the bond angles, and sketch the orbital structure for.
    1. H2
    2. CH4
    3. NH3
    4. H2O
    5. HCl
    6. HBr
    7. SiO2
    8. PCl5
    9. CO2
    10. BeH2
    11. BF3
    12. CF2Cl2
    13. C2H6
    14. C2H4
    15. C2H2

  2. Draw Lewis dot structures, determine the hybridization of each atom and sketch the structure based on this model, draw molecular orbital energy level diagrams and sketch a structure based on this model for,
    1. H2
    2. N2
    3. O2
    Compare the Lewis dot, hybrid, and MO models for describing the structure of these molecules.
