Hello, I'm really struggling in advanced higher chemistry and I'm stuck on hybridisation where it talks about alkenes where two of the p orbitals combine forming 3sp squared hybrids. My question is what is this and why?

So there are more unpaired electrons meaning more bonds can form between carbons and hydrogens I think. And there is lower energy for these orbitals and therefore the molecule is more stable. Hard to explain without diagram/electron configuration of exact alkenes you are talking about.
