sigma/pi bonds and bond order

Postby leediane0916 » Thu Nov 08, 2018 5:15 pm

how do we use sigma/pi bonds to calculate bond order? (or bond length???)

A single bind is a sigma bond. A sigma bond is cylindrically symmetrical with no nodal planes containing to the internuclear axis. All single covalent bonds are sigma bonds. A pi bond has a single nodal plane containing to the internuclear axis. A double bond is typically considered a pi bond.

sigma bonds are single bonds and pi bonds are double or triple bonds. the bond order is the number of bonds between two elements.
