A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

How far apart are the sp2 orbitals in an sp hybridization?

Sp2 orbitals are used in the expansion of the molecules shape. The difference in distance between the Sp2 orbital in an SP hybridization is 120 degrees.


Sp hybridized orbitals are what?

orbitals are 'hybridized' when some energy has been distributed to them so they are no longer distinct as atomic orbitals, distinct as separate 's' and 'p' orbitals but are 2 equal orbitals called 'sp' hybridized.


Shape of the sp and d orbits?

sp orbitals are linear in shape while d orbitals have a cloverleaf (dumbbell with ring) shape.

What are Sp hybridized orbitals?

sp hybrid orbitals are literally a hybrid of the S and P orbitals. in P block atoms that have 4 distinct bonds or non bonding pairs of electrons the valence electrons organize into 4 sp hybrid orbitals that point out from the nucleus like the points of a tetrahedron.


Does Carbon use sp hybrid orbitals in ClCN?

yes


Which hydrocarbon contains triple bond?

Alkynes: they contain SP hybridized Carbon atoms. The 2 SP hybridized orbitals of two adjacent carbons overlap, leaving two more unhybridized p orbitals, which overlap. This forms three pairs of shared electrons over two carbon atoms, or simply, a triple bond.Alkynes contain triple bonds.Best of luck
