Dear jose4.peter42@gmail.com

Thanks for asking us a question in Ask the Expert section of TopperLearning.com.

 In case of multiple questions within a query, please post each question individually and let us know where you are getting stuck so that we would be able to explain things better.
 
 
Solution of your first query:
 
Hybridisaton can be defined as the mixing of atomic orbitals belonging to the same atom but have slightly different energies. On mixing same number of new hybrid orbitals of same energies are formed.
For example:
sp hybrid orbitals: when one s and one p orbital get mixed to form two sp-orbital with 180o bond angle.
