    The choice of 'd' orbital for a particular type of hybridization depends on the spatial orientation of the orbital and the geometry of the molecule or ion which the hybridized orbi...

    Mainly by convention we take z axis as internuclear axis so...for sp hybridization s and pz orbital is used for linear overlapping
  • Suman Kumar thankyou
    Which orbital will participate in hybridization depends on geometry & shape of the molecule. A molecule which has sp hybridization has linear shape. Now why Pz only? Since by conve...

    Now participation of d: if geometry & shape of the molecule is square pyramidal then dx2-y2. And if the geometry is trigonal bipyramidal then dz2 will participate.
  • Dinesh khalmaniya thankyou
    in sp hybridisation ww can use px,py or pz because all have same energy but we use z internulear axis so pz used
