Question

# Hybridization of central atom in NF3 is:

Solution

## The correct option is A We can approach this problem by two ways. Let's take a look at electronic configuration of Nitrogen. Now why Nitrogen? Because nitrogen is our central atom. → 3 Flourine will overlap with 3 sp3 hybrid orbitals. →  In one sp3 hybrid oribital, a lone pair will be present. So,  sp3 hybridization OR By VSEPR, let's calculate electron pairs. ep = V+L+A−C2 = 5+32 = 4 4 ⇒ tetrahedral geometry ⇒ sp3 hybridization
