Hello!The hybridization of the C atom in CH₂Br₂ is sp3When bonding, the orbitals "s" and "p" of C atoms interact to form orbitals hybridized. If the C atom has 4 sigma bonds, as is the case in CH₂Br₂, there are 4 orbitals hybridized necessary, so that 1 "s" orbital and 3 "p" orbitals hybridize to form a hybrid orbital sp3. This orbital has a tetrahedral geometry and the bond angle is 109,5 °.Have a nice day!
