can orbitals formed through hybridisation be also called as degenerate orbitals as they have the same energy

Expert Answer:

Yes. Hybridisation is a phenomenon of mixing of atomic orbitals which forms orbitals of the same energy and shape. These same energy orbitals are called as degenerate orbitals or hybrid orbitals.
