Why does the MO diagram for p shells change starting form the element oxygen? For B, C, and N, the bonds form starting with pi bonds with the lowest energy and then moving up to the sigma bond. Starting from oxygen and beyond, however, it returns to the more familiar phenomenon of forming sigma bond...
