I want to know how to calculate hybridisation of an atom in a given compound like I want to calculate hybridisation of Boron & Oxygen in this boric acid compound H_{3}BO_{3} I even want to know any simpler easier method to calculate fast.
Ans) The formula for boric acid is H_{3 }BO_{3}To calculate for Boron:-as it is the cental atom...No of valence electrons of all atoms:24no. of octets:24/8=3lone pairs=0Hence the Hybrid state of Boron is sp^{2}.For O...Drawing the srtucture of H_{3} BO_{3 }as the central atom...we get every O has one double bond and one coordinate bond.Hence it has only one sigma bond so it does not enters a hybrid state
