​dear student
valence bond (VB) theoryis one of two basictheories, along withmolecular orbital (MO) theory, that were developed to use the methods ofquantum mechanicsto explainchemical bonding. It focuses on how theatomic orbitalsof the dissociated atoms combine to give individual chemical bonds when a molecule is formed. In contrast, molecular orbital theory has orbitals that cover the whole molecule

No. of valence electrons in central atom. (carbon)= 4

Extra electrons in HCO3^-1 = 2

Total electrons in central atom = 6

Hybrid oribitals required = 6/2 = 3

Hybridization = sp2

Geometry = trigonal
