What do each of the bonds determine when you draw them out?

If don't know if this is what you're asking, but when you draw more bonds, the bonds are shorter and the bonds are stronger

When you draw them out, the bonds determine certain properties of a molecule. For example, you can see how the orbitals are placed in relation to one another and whether or not the bound atom is able to rotate (yes for sigma bonds but not for pi bonds).

Each bond determines the properties of the molecule, like whether or not the atoms bonded can rotate freely (sigma bonds) or not (pi bonds).

The Sigma bond is when two electron clouds meet and create a bond (think of it as the FIRST bond that's made). And the Pi bond is the second bond made. This bond is made from electrons that are around/surrounding the bonded atoms. I don't know if it makes sense because you kind of need to see it but I don't know how to attach a picture.

Each of the bonds determine the shape that will be used. Based on the number, you have to pick a shape.
