We report here the relativistic effects on molecular configuration. The most stable states of group IIAmetal hydride were calculated by density functional calculation and we discussed the relationship between the AH2 molecule structure and the NBO data of A―H bond. The application of the relativistic effects in hybrid orbital was concluded and some advice was given about chemical education in college.

Key words: University chemistry, Relativistic effects, Hybrid orbital, Group IIA metal hydride
