can u pls explain sp,sp2,sp3 hybridising?what is sigma bond

Expert Answer:

  Sigma (σ) bond: This type of covalent bond is formed by the end to end (hand on) overlapping of bonding orbitals along the inter-nuclear axis. The overlap is known as head on overlap or axial overlap. Sigma (σ) bond can be formed by s – s, s – p overlapping, p – p Overlapping etc. overlapping,

Depending on the orbitals used  sp,sp2 and sp3  hybridisation takes place
