How to determine hybridization of multicentred species

One more thing determine hybridization of P4O??

#2

Calculate no of sigma bonds+lone pair

#3

Is P4O exists??

#4

#5

How can you say that it is P4O10.
And if it is then how will you find the hybridization of this?

#6

Because P4O don't exist and You know that to find the hybridisation you must know the structure of any component.Through this you can find easily its hybridisation

#7

Actually,the structure of P4O10 is much more complex,so could you please elaborate how you will find its hybridization?

#8

In a multicentre compound we will follow this rule.

  1. we will see which element is lesson number.
  2. centre atom will less electronegative element.
    So here centre atom will be Phosphorus.
#9

What do you mean by this lesson number?

Oh shit it’s a mistake
It is less in number.
