    Hybridized/Unhybridized orbitals

    I stumbled upon this problem: "The s and p orbitals of Pb are poorly energetically matched, and do not noticeably hybridize. In Pb(II) compounds, the two remaining electrons on Pb reside in an unhybridized s orbital, and bonding utilizes only the p-orbitals. In gaseous PbCl2, what is the...
