Question: What orbitals are used to form each of the C-C and C-H bonds in (propane)? How many bonds are present in this molecule?
The sp3-sp3 hybrid orbitals are used for the formation of each C-C bonds in propane. The orbitals used for the formation of C-H bonds in propane are the sp3 orbital of carbon with 1s orbital of hydrogen.
Ten sigma (σ ) bonds are present in this molecule.
The molecular formula of propane is.
Structure of propane
In propane, all the carbon atoms are hybridized.
Each C-C bond in propane is formed by overlapping of hybrid orbitals, whereas the overlap of orbital of carbon with 1s orbital of hydrogen causes the formation of each C-H bond.
From its structure, the propane molecule is saturated, and four sigma bonds are obtained from each carbon.
Thus, the total number of sigma atoms present in propane is ten
