Sir, why sigma bonds are stronger than pie bonds??

Asked by sumukhverma1107 | 21st Sep, 2010, 12:00: AM

Expert Answer:

The extent of a bond depends upon the extent of overlapping. since in the formation of σ bond, overlapping is along the internuclear axis, therefore there is considerable overlapping.Hence the the σ bond is a strong bond.
