Sigma and Pi Bonds

Postby salvadorramos3k » Sun Nov 03, 2019 12:20 am

What is the difference between a sigma and a pi bond and what information will be most useful in preparing for the exam regarding these bonds? Thanks!

The Sigma and Pi bonds will not be on the exam. They are chemistry topics that we will learn later on.

Sigma and Pi bonds make up a double bond. The main difference between the two is that the pi bond is responsible for resonance, whereas the sigma bond's location doesn't change.

Can sigma and pi bonds be found in single or triple bonds too or only double bonds?
