Sigma and Pi Bonds

Postby 205389184 » Sun Nov 17, 2019 10:35 pm

In a triple bond, does it matter the order in which the sigma and pi bonds are?

For a triple bond, I think of it as 1 sigma bond and then 2 pi bonds

As long as you state there is one sigma and 2 pi bonds it doesn't matter how you assign them.

It seems like all we need to know for sigma/pi bonds for Test 2 is the definition and properties of sigma/pi bonds and what one/two/three bonds mean, is that right?
Thanks!

Yes we need the definition and how they are present in the bonds. In the triple bond, there would be 1 sigma and 2 pi bonds most of the time.

The order of which of the 3 bonds is sigma and which are pi isn't important, even the book doesn't spend very much time on that. I think we probably just have to know that a triple bond has 1 sigma bond and 2 pi bonds

how are we supposed to order bonds?

You don't need to order the bonds. Just know how many sigma and pi bonds are present in each kind of bond (Triple Bond = 1 Sigma Bond and 2 Pi Bonds,etc.)

You just need to know that triple bonds consist of one sigma bond and two pi bonds

All bonds are denoted as straight lines, so there is no way to differentiate them

a triple bond is composed of a sigma bond and two pi bonds. The order does not matter.

A triple bond contains 1 sigma and 2 pi bonds. The order does not matter.

You only need to know that a triple bond contains 1 sigma and 2 pi bonds.

Order is not important, just know a triple bond means a sigma bond with two pi bonds

Order does not matter as long as you state that there is one sigma and two pi bonds
