Expert Answer:

Structure of BeCl2:

  • In BeCl2, the two singly occupied orbitals (2s and 2p) hybridise to give two sp-hybrid orbitals. These hybrid orbitals lie along the z-direction and point in opposite directions.
  • The ground state electronic configuration of Be is 1s22s2. In the exited state, one of the 2s-electrons is promoted to the vacant 2p orbital to account for its bivalency.
  • One 2s and one 2p-orbital hybridise to form two sp hybridised orbitals. These two sp hybrid orbitals are oriented in opposite directions formi
