I am giving you a simple formula to calculate hybridisation of any compound 
Hybridisation (x)= ½ (no of valence electron in x atom + no of monovalent ion attached to it ) 
in case of ionic compounds (x)= ½ ( no of valence electron in x atom + negative charge on atom —       
Positive charge on atom ) 
So in our case Xe = 1/2 (8 +2) =5 
Hence hybridisation in XeF2 is sp3d2 
Shape of XeF2 is linear . 
Hope it helps you:)

Dear Aditi,
Hybridisation of xef6 is sp3d.
If an atom is surrounded by many other atoms or surrounded by larger alkyl group then we can consider about steric hinderance..
Thanks and Regards

XeF2 is the example of VSPER theory complexes .In this case firstly we have to know about %s donar and acceptor group. AS we know via steric rule the hybridization in XeF2 is SP3d geometry is trigonal pyramidal  ( in which two type of hybrid mixing take place sp2 and pd mixing)they makes trigonal and linear shape and all over geometry look likes trigonal pyramid ,pd mixing have no %s character while sp2 have %s character present acc to %s donar and accetor place the group at trigonal and linear site.I wanna tell you lone pair has nature to accept the%S character and electronegative atom %s donar in nature so acc to this  we can place the group at axail and equitorial . After placing the group you will find the linear str of XeF2.       That is the only simple way to know the str of thats type of compound                                                                                                                                                                                                Thank you                                                                                                                                                                                                      atul  pandey

							Use formula 1/2(x+y-c+a)Here x is the no. Of valance electrons in the central atom.If more atoms of the same kind are present then multiply them by the valance.Y is the valance of attached atoms (ligands).C is charge on cation and A is charge on anion.Using this u will get the ans as 5.Which is sp3d.U can use sterric rule as well. But for this case u will not get the answer.The above rules are applicable only in certain cases.U must however have the knowledge of hybridisation these formulas only help us to check whether we r right or wrong.Hoping that it will help u.ThanksRegards.
