What is the hybridisation of Cl2? Is it different from the hybridisation of F2 molecules?

No comments

Here you can see the hybridization of both is same ,

both of these two elements have seven electrons in outermost shell and below is the diagram showing the electrons filled in s-subshell and p-subshell .

one orbital of s- subshell

and three orbitals of p-subshell are used during hybridisation.

So the type of hybridization is sp3 hybridisation.
