resonance bond rules

Postby Mallika Singh 1G » Sun Nov 24, 2019 10:41 pm

in resonance structures, the same rules we would use to figure out the number of sigma and pi bonds still apply right?

It should be, since the idea of sigma and pi bonds are based on the number of bonds created between atoms. Since resonance structures are just different structures of the same compound with electrons rearranged, then the same rules for deciding sigma and pi bonds should be the same, or at least I'm assuming so.

I'm guessing resonance structures still apply to the idea that they're hybrids of the resonance structures, so the number of signature and pi bonds don't change based on what resonance structure you use.
