Ok I am desperately trying to figure out this S orbital p orbital sp3 thing. I understand How Carbon is 1s2 2s2 2p3, however, I am trying to hook it up to H. Ok So (excuse my crude words) is Carbon 2 spheres and 3 dumbells? Is H one dumbell. Is that what I am working with before I shove everything together? I am somehow not getting the right shapes when I do it.
