# What is the percentage of s character in sp3 hybridized orbital?

The sp3 hybridized orbital has 25% s- character and 75% p- character.

### What are s,p,d,f orbitals?

s, p, d, f are the orbital and orbitals are known as the regions of space where electrons exist.

• s = Sharp
• p = Principal
• d = Diffuse
• f = Fundamental

S, p,d,f are the names of subshells within a shell whose values are determined by an azimuthal quantum number. The s orbitals are spherical, while p orbitals are polar and oriented in particular directions (x, y, and z)

• s can hold 2 electrons
• p can hold 6 electrons
• d can hold 10 electrons
• f can hold 14 electrons
