What makes up a sigma bond?

Postby A De Castro 14B 2H » Tue Nov 20, 2018 3:37 pm

Based on Monday’s lesson (11/19) on hybridization, is it safe to assume that at least one hybrid orbital constitutes a sigma bond?

A sigma bond consists of two orbitals, each with 1e- interacting end-to-end to for 1sigma bond. Sigma bonds allow bound atoms to rotate, resulting sigma bonds have e- density with cylindrical symmetry around internuclear axis.
