Explain, how is the electronegativity

Question:

Explain, how is the electronegativity of carbon atoms related to their state of hybridisation in an organic compound?

Solution:

Hybridization for carbon in organic compounds is of three types, sp, sp2 and sp3. More the ā€˜sā€™ character more is the electronegativity of the carbon as ā€˜sā€™ orbitals are

closer to the nucleus, hence electrons held more closely.
