explain the hybridization in co2

  • 0
In CO2 molecule, Carbon atom forms 4 bonds with two O atoms. Out of these, 2 bonds are pi-bonds and the other two bonds are sigma-bonds i.e. one sigma and one pi bond per oxygen atom. Thus, the total number of sigma bonds formed by Carbon atom is 2. Hence Carbon atom is sp hybridised.
