Molecular Orbital Theory when nuclear charge is less than 8

Postby Jasmine Holloway 1G » Sun Nov 01, 2015 9:12 am

I understand that the sigma bonds are higher in energy for atoms with nuclear charges less than 8, but I do not understand why it is that way. Could someone please explain? (:

It takes more energy for them pair in a sigma bond than a pi bond, in this case.
