Re: Diff Sigma btw Pi Bonds

If it is a single bond, it is a sigma bond, any additional bonds (the second bond within a double bond or the second and third bonds in a triple bond) are pi bonds. Sigma bonds occur end to end while pi bonds are side to side; sigma bonds allow atomic rotation and are therefore stronger than pi bond...

Re: Radical Atoms ?

A radical is a compound that has an unpaired electron. If the total number of valence electrons within a compound is an odd number, it will be a radical.

Re: Oxidation states

For coordination compounds, based on the charge of the overall compound, you can figure out the oxidation state of the central ion based on the known charges of the ligands and ions. For example, [Pt (NH3)5 Cl] Br3 has no net charge, so you know that the sum of all the charges must be 0. NH3 has no ...

Re: Why is AX3E2 linear?

We base the electron pair geometry on the number of regions of electron density surrounding the central atom (5), so it is trigonal bipyramidal. For the molecular geometry, we look at the bonds specifically. The bonds between the 3 surrounding atoms with the central atom create a T-shaped geometry.

Unless the bonded atoms are the same element, it is likely that the covalent bond has ionic characteristics/some polarity, since different elements possess different electronegativities and will therefore unequally share electrons.
