Sigma and Pi bonds

Postby paulacamara1E » Sun Jun 03, 2018 10:38 pm

Can someone clarify how we would be tested on sigma and pi bonds, for example types of questions that could involve these bonds?

I’m guessing that there would be an arrow pointing to a bond and you would have to identify the type or it would ask how many total pi and sigma bonds there are in a Lewis structure that we would be given a picture of.

We would likely be given a bond (single, double, or triple) and be asked to find the number of sigma/pi bonds.
We should also be able to identify the fact that sigma bonds are two orbitals bonding end-to-end where bond atoms can rotate, whereas pi bonds are two orbitals bonding side-by-side where bond atoms cannot rotate.

I think the most important thing you need to know about them is that single bonds are sigma bonds, double bonds are a sigma bond and a pi bond, and a triple bond is a sigma bond and two pi bonds.
