what is the key role of hybridization

Dear student 
Hybridisation is very important as it helps in the formation of a new set of orbitals with the same energy as the combining orbitals.

Hybridisation also helps us in knowing the shape of the molecule.
If a molecule is sp2 hybridised, then it is trigonal planar in shape.
If it is sp3 hybridised, then it is tetrahedral in shape.
sp3d2 is octahedral and so on.
