1. The C=C double bond is....

  • ...made of 2 pi bonds, overlapping end-on
  • ....made of p-orbitals that overlap sideways to form a sigma bond, split in electron density above and below the nuclei plane
  • ... not quite twice as strong as the C-C bond, due to the presence of the pi bond
  • ... more than twice as strong as the C-C bond due to the electron-dense sigma bond
