What is the hybridization in #'CO'_2#?
- C/C language support in Atom Adds syntax highlighting and snippets to C/C files in Atom. Originally converted from the C TextMate bundle. Contributions are greatly appreciated.
- Alternative Title: C Carbon (C), nonmetallic chemical element in Group 14 (IVa) of the periodic table. Although widely distributed in nature, carbon is not particularly plentiful—it makes up only about 0.025 percent of Earth’s crust—yet it forms more compounds than all the other elements combined.
Atom, the code editor from Github, increases in popularity day after day. Developers prefer this code editor because it’s lightweight, it has a low learning curve, and it can be extended with a variety of useful Atom packages.

According to VSEPR theory, we can use the steric number
#'SN = 2'#corresponds to #sp#hybridization. #'SN'= 3'#corresponds to #sp^2#hybridization.
