How do sigma and pi bonds differ in energy?

Where in the textbook did you find information about sigma and pi bonds? I don't think we've covered them in lecture yet

Hi, sigma bonds are stronger than pi bonds. This means that the sigma bond will have higher energy because the s orbital overlaps over a greater area than the p orbital.

Do sigma and pi bonds directly correspond with bond length AND bond energy?

Sigma and Pi bonds are talked about on page 120 of the 6th edition. (Chapter 4)

the shorter the bond, the stronger it is. And triple bonds are shorter than double bonds which are shorter than single bonds. (triple < double < single) And anything more than a single bond has at least one pi bond. (for example, a triple bond is 1 sigma and 2 pi bonds) So I guess you could say the presence of a pi bond indicates a stronger bond than just a sigma bond alone.
