### Composition of Bonds and Hybridization

For textbook #45, the question asked for the composition of the bonds and the hybridization. Does the composition of bonds just mean the difference between sigma and pi bonds? Or do we have to know any specific reaction or something?

I think we just need to know that sigma bonds are formed by the end-to-end overlap of orbitals and pi bonds are formed by the side-to-side overlap of orbitals, but I'm not totally sure.

For this question, I think you only have to address the pi and sigma bonds. But in other questions, the pi and sigma bonds might affect which plane the terminal atoms are in.

I'm thinking on the Final, Lavelle will ask the question more like "describe" or "identify how many sigma and pi bonds" like the book does. Just understand that its all tasing the same thing. Multiple choice questions will make that clear also.
