# in hybridization, can bond angles be different

Is there a concept of mixed hybridization where bond angles in a hybridized molecule are different angles?

• Could you expand and clarify your question a bit? For example, what do you mean by "mixed hybridization"? – ron Jan 17 '16 at 18:55

• $\ce{NH3}$ and $\ce{PH3}$ don't have the same hybridization, see this earlier answer. Also, unless the carbon atom in a molecule has tetrahedral symmetry it will not be $\ce{sp^3}$ hybridized; it may be $\ce{sp^{2.9}}$ or $\ce{sp^{3.1}}$, etc., but it won't be $\ce{sp^3}$. – ron Jan 17 '16 at 19:02
