Sigma and pi bonds


Sigma and pi bonds

It results in electrons clouded from each electron overlap bond = sigma bond. Ex:

  • C-C bonds
  • C-H bonds

Alkanes such as methane consists oif carbon 2s and 2p atomic orbitals making 4 hybrid orbitals called sp3 orbitals (Result of hybridsation of one s and three p orbital in 2nd energy level).
