The Type Of Hybridisation Of P Atom In PCL 5​, PCL 4+ And PCL 6− Is

In \( PCl_{5},\) the number of electron pairs around the central atom P is 5 and the number of lone pairs is 0. Therefore, the type of hybridisation of P atom in \( PCl_{5} is sp^{3}d \)

In \( PCl_{4}^{+},\) the number of electron pairs around the central atom P is 4 and the number of lone pairs is 0. Therefore, the type of hybridisation of P atom in \( PCl_{4}^{+} is sp^{3} \)

In \( PCl_{6}^{-},\), the number of electron pairs around the central atom P is 6 and the number of lone pairs is 0. Therefore, the type of hybridisation of P atom in \( PCl_{6}^{-} is sp^{2}d^{2} \)
