is it possible for two 2p ortibals on an atom to combine to give two orbitals? my guess is no because they are on different axis?

this is concept of hybridization .....according to the hybridization mixing of basic orbitals (s,p,d,f)so on obtain hybrid orbitals .now according to ur question two 2p of an atom to combine gives hybrid orbitals ...we didn't get two new orbitals

Hybrid orbitals are formed by, in this case, an s orbital donating an electron so that there is an avaiable place to bond:\[{\uparrow \downarrow \over 1s } {\uparrow \downarrow \over 2s } { \over 2p } {\over 2p } {\over 2p } \] the s will now donate\[{\uparrow \downarrow \over 1s } {\uparrow \over 2s } {\uparrow \over 2p } {\over 2p } {\over 2p } \] Now there are two places for a hydrogen bond. Since it's made of one s and one p we call them sp orbitals. There won't be a situation where a p donates an electron to another p to form a hybrid. This would have no advantage and in fact hurt my brain very much if it were true. This is due to the theory that they fill each orbital individually before putting two electrons in one orbital.
