Top A level JC H2 Chemistry Tuition in Singapore (

Unit: Organic Chemistry
Topic: Introductory Topics_Hybridisation

Pre-requisite Knowledge
Students should already possess the content knowledge of
- the shapes of s and p orbitals (Atomic Structure)
- covalent bonding in terms of orbital overlap, giving sigma and pi bonds (Chemical Bonding)
- the limitations of VSEPR theory and hence the need for the hybridization theory (Chemical Bonding)

Learning Objectives
At the end of this learning package, students should be able to
(i) describe the 3 forms of hybridisation (sp3, sp2, sp) in methane, benzene and beryllium chloride using hybridisation theory.
(ii) apply the hybridization theory to explain the shapes and bond angles of molecules.
