why are pi bonds shown in the p orbital?

Pi bonds are side by side overlap of p orbitals

a pi bond is formed when two p orbitals overlap in a side-by-side fashion with the electron density concentrated above and below the plane of the nuclei of the bonding atoms.

Pi is the Greek letter for "p". The nomenclature is defined in this way because it has similar properties as p orbitals, including two electron dense regions seperated by a nodal plane. Pi bond is not shown in the p orbital; it is formed by overlapping two p orbitals from two atoms side-by-side. Hope this help!

So in the event that a molecule such as Te (ground state: 5p4) forms a double bond with an element, would it be only the p orbitals that would take part in the double bond? Are orbitals above p (as in d or f) able to form pi bonds, or are those a different type of bond that we haven't discussed yet? It would be great if anyone could help me with this! Thank you!

Pi bonds are shown in the p-orbital because of its shape lets it have two regions of overlap. On above the axis and below it. Here, at these overlaps, there is a high concentration of electron density.

A pi bond is created when two p orbitals overlap side by side, with electron density concentrated above and below the plane of the bonding atoms.

When two p orbitals overlap they form a pi bond

Pi bonds form when p orbitals overlap.

They are shown in the p orbital because a pi bond is formed when 2 p orbitals overlap vertically.

Pi bonds show up in the p orbital rather than the s orbital because they occur when two p orbitals overlap side by side. This results in bound atoms being unable to rotate and electron density both above and below the internuclear axis.

The pi bonds are when there is side by side interaction which happens with p orbitals.
