Describe the shapes of BF3 and BH4-. Assign the hybridisation of boron in these species.

BFmolecule is formed by bonding between three sp2 orbitals of B and p of 3 F atoms. The halides of the boron form triangular geometry.

BH4 is the species that has tetrahedral geometry, accounted for by the sp3 hybridized orbitals.
