  • question_answer Carbon atoms in the compound \[{{(CN)}_{4}}{{C}_{2}}\] are [Roorkee 1999]

    A) sp hybridized

    B) \[s{{p}^{2}}\] hybridized

    C) sp and \[s{{p}^{2}}\] hybridized

    D) sp, \[s{{p}^{2}}\] and \[s{{p}^{3}}\] hybridized

    Correct Answer: C

    Solution :

    \[\begin{matrix}    N\equiv \underset{sp}{\mathop{C}}\,  \\    {}  \\    N\equiv \underset{sp}{\mathop{C}}\,  \\ \end{matrix}\,>\underset{s{{p}^{2}}}{\mathop{C}}\,=\underset{s{{p}^{2}}}{\mathop{C}}\,<\begin{matrix}    \overset{sp\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,}{\mathop{C\equiv N}}\,  \\    {}  \\    \underset{sp\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,}{\mathop{C\equiv N}}\,  \\ \end{matrix}\]
