Hybridization in central atom can be determined in the following steps:
i) Write the Lewis structure to get a rough idea about the structure of molecule.
ii) Finding the number of σ-bonds:
The number of σ-bonds = number of atoms with which the central atom is directly linked to.
Note: Only we need to find the number of σ-bonds. If there is a double or triple bond, remember that it constitutes only one σ-bonds.
iii) Finding the number of lone pairs on central atom:
The number of lone pairs = (v-b-c) / 2
v = no. of valence electrons in central atom.
b = no. of bonds (including both σ & π bonds) formed by central atom.
c = charge on the molecule or ionic species.
