### pi bond and sigma bond

Hi do pi bonds stand for p in the p orbital and sigma stand for s in s orbital?

What do we need to know about pi and sigma bonds for the final?

Sigma and pi bonds don't really correlate with s and p, respectively. Sigma bonds form when an s orbital overlaps with another s orbital, an s overlaps with a p, or a p overlaps with another p end-to-end. Pi bonds are formed when additional orbitals overlap side-by-side.

I would say know what they each represent and also how many of each make up a single, double, and triple bond.
