THE OVERLAPPING POWERS OF 2s 2p 2sp2  2sp3   2sp orbitals are ???? and WHY?????

6 years ago


Answers : (1)


2S has maximum overlapping power while 2p has minimum. While those with more s-characters have overlapping. The reason is that s being spherical has more overlapping power than p which is large in its length.

The order is 2s > 2sp > 2sp2 > 2sp3 > 2p.
