sigma bonds are just single bonds, pi bonds occur when you have a double bond or triple bond. if you have a double bond, you would have one sigma and one pi bond, and if you had a triple bond, youd have one sigma and two pi bonds

These bonds are important as they utilize molecular orbital theory to predict behaviors between molecules.

Sigma bonds are also generally stronger than pi bonds and sigma can exist independently.

sigma bonds occur in single bonds, and pi bonds occur in double or triple bonds.
