### Sigma and pi bond

Hi,

I was wondering how we were suppose to work with resonnance structure to determine sigma and pi bond?
Do we count 2pi bond, 2 sigma bond or one of each?

Thank you very much!

### Re: Sigma and pi bond

You would do separate sigma and pi bond descriptions for each resonance structure. Since they are two different structures, you would not count them together.

### Re: Sigma and pi bond

The number of pi and sigma bonds is for each structure/resonance structure, so if asked how many pi or sigma bonds a molecule has, you should not add up the pi or sigma bonds of all the resonance structures.
