Post office hours question 10/17/18

Hi Phil,

I had a question about the hybrid orbitals we were talking about yesterday. With the various sp3 orbitals were we essentially showing how essentially the Heinsenberg Uncertainty Principle works with the electron configurations? I think I was a bit lost because of the extent of the discussion. For sp3 vs. sp2 vs sp hybridization, obviously each time we add to a single bond with a double bond we are adding a p orbital (dumbbell shape) each time, but I was also not sure how this related to what we were discussing yesterday evening? I would very much appreciate your help. Thank you very much.

Hey Shaun! I just saw this. I know we talked about it in Office hours, so hopefully it is clear now!
